This Kharek ka Halwa is like nothing you've ever tasted before! The combination of dry dates with full-fat milk gives this halwa a rich and intense texture, while an unusual combination of spices gives it a fabulous aroma and flavour.
Although it is optional to add coriander seeds, we recommend you to, because it gives the Kharek ka Halwa a very special flavour and mouth-feel.
