Second day of the second week of BM # 17, I am serving you a pretty easy halwa, that can be a party pleaser and will help you when you have sudden guests. While I was randomly blog hop, which I do very often, I stumbled upon this post from Raks. I have adapted the recipe from there and did not change any measurements. The end result was fanstastic. I had packed it for my grandmom ( Janaki Paati )in Tirunelveli and heard that she enjoyed every bit of this sweet inspite of being a diabetic patient
Corn Flour - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1.5 cups
Water - 2 cups
