100 Halwa Recipes from different parts of India

What is Halwa?  An Indian mithai with a soft, fudge-like texture, the halwa just slides down your throat and warms your soul! One of the all-time favourite Indian sweets, halwa is made for any and every occasion, and sometimes for no reason at all.    

Halwa can be made with roasted flour, grated veggies or mashed fruits. The key ingredient is essentially cooked with sugar and ghee to get a soft, luscious, heartwarming sweet dish, resplendent with the aroma of ghee and Indian spices like cardamom.

Halwas from different parts of India

Halwas from different parts of India. You can smell a classic halwa even before you see it – that means it has been done right.  Halwas are made all over India. While some like the Sooji ka HalwaMoong Dal HalwaBadam Halwa and Carrot Halwa are popular all over the country, each region has its specialty too, like the Wheat Halwa of Tamil Nadu, which is made with the milk extracted from soaked wheat! Halwas, unlike sheeras and kheers are usually slow-cooked to get a rich taste.

Moong Dal Halwa has originated from Rajashtan and consumed in the cold winter months where it will keep the body warm. Sooji ka Halwa is quick to make and more popular in North India. Chana Dal Halwa is a Punjab style chana dal halwa made during festivals and celebrations. Carrot Halwa has its origins in North India. 

Slow cooked Halwas

Even a small portion is enough to satisfy your sweet tooth. However, there are quick-fix versions that you can cook in a jiffy too. So, worry not. The Moong Dal Halwa and Chana Dal Halwa are typical examples of slow-cooked halwas. Although there might be quick workarounds for these, the slow versions taste better because the dal loses its raw smell and imbibes a rich taste only when you cook it in a heavy-bottomed vessel for a while.

You can make halwa out of rich ingredients like the Walnut Halwa or Badam Halwa, of course only to be enjoyed occasionally.

Healthy halwa recipes from India
