A traditional mithai that everybody has a reason to like—some for the taste, some for the goodness of doodhi and milk, and some for the warm feeling it instills on a rainy day!

I know some busy-bees who would stop over at a sweetmeat stall, have a cup of halwa and a Punjabi Samosa in lieu of a meal, and continue their work with full energy!

Traditionally the doodhi is cooked in a pressure cooker, but this recipe uses the Microwave , reducing the time taken by 50 per cent! the authentic taste remains.

Doodhi halwa.. an irrestible sweet dish.. the mava blended well with the doodhi.. which makes it more creamy. Cardamom powder giving a mild flavour to the dish.The cooking process also made simple and quick. simply superb..
