Last week, we had attended a function, wherein we had tiffin meals. All the items served there was new to me as it was a typical Tamil feast. The first item served was a sweet. On enquiring with my friends, I was told that it is Kasi Halwa. I loved the taste so much that I had made up my mind to try this one at home at the earliest chance. More so, as it is a very easy to prepare dessert.

The recipe yields about a bowlful of Halwa, as seen in the picture.

    Hi mareena,
    I was just going through your blog and realized alot of your recipes call for brown sugar. I live in the south of india and can’t find brown sugar anywhere neither molasses. Which brand brown sugar do you use? Do you know of any substitutes?
