Multani Sohan Halwa
Sadia Ali Khan - hyderabad Sep 12, 2018
Multani sohan halwa is just the best halwa that I have ever tasted! From the taste to the creamy texture, I am just in so much love with this recipe. Most of all, this recipe can help me make bazaar wala multani sohan ka halwa and that's just amazing!
Habshi Halwa
Ghuri Aftab Khan - karachi Sep 12, 2018
Habshi halwa does not sound anything like the name! Sure, the name signifies something mysterious and the taste is mysteriously good but I still prefer the halwa to be called something else.
