Today, I am sharing yet another easy to make recipe - maida halwa / bombay halwa. The name bombay halwa has always attracted me. I often prepare it as it is very easy to make and kids love it. As Diwali is nearing, I thought of sharing this wonderful sweet with you all. Halwa is one of my favorite sweet and my kids also love it. After sharing, oats ribbon pakoda, maida burfi, rava ladoo, ari murukku, I thought of sharing this wonderful sweet for this Diwali. Now to the recipe..
