Custard Powder Halwa

Diwali is nearing very fast, its time for many of us to plan the Diwali special sweets or savouries. Even am planning to make a variety of sweets and savouries since this time Diwali is falling on saturday, kids will be at home eventhough H will be working. However once again this time my H will miss the celebration and poojas. If you dont have any idea about any sweets, am sure this custard powder halwa will definitely helps you for last minute preparation. Just a simple custard powder,sugar, ghee with few nuts,your halwa is ready to serve and enjoy with your family.

From today onwards am running an another week of blogging marathon and the theme of this week is festive dishes with stepwise pictures. Obviously i chosed Diwali sweets and savouries, next two days are going to be two different dishes with stepwise pictures. Stepwise pictures helps a lot to learn easily and quickly any dish. Coming to this halwa, this sweet tastes fabulous and takes hardly less than half an hour to get ready, an easy breezy sweet to make when you have sudden guests at home.This halwa tastes as much as like corn flour halwa, seriously we loved it.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#33.Sending to Gayathri's Diwali Special and sending these beauties are going Diwali Delicacies Event, hosted by me and Sangee Vijay of spicy treats.
