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.
