Halwala ithanai varietyaa? Enakku therinjathu Tirunelveli Alva thaan. Athai kanomay ithula?

Anyway, halwa is a very sensitive product. I still remember one of my Deepavali days when my sister decided to do halwa, without my mom's guidance. It so happened that the halwa became solid and stuk to the vaanali and we had to discard the whole vessel. It was very funny. So who ever tries these recipes, be preapred for catastrophes also. Illati, pesama moolaila irukkira sweet kadaila vaangi saapidunga.

Cheers.

Sabesan,

Anth iruttu kadai is a famous halwa shop in Tirunelveli. He makes fixed quantity everyday and people wait in queue to get that halwa. It is a small shot in the town and is a real tasty halwa. It is not a type of halwa.

Cheers.
