Karachi Halwa is a tasty nutty fare.Some people also call it the Bombay halwa.However, it will forever be Karachi Halwa for the Sindhi diaspora.We might have lost Sindh due to partition but the cuisine forever remains with us wherever we may go.This Indian sweet is much liked and loved all over.It is hard to miss a bright green Karachi halwa & orange colored cubes in any sweet shop across India.
I must mention few people who really make it well.
Best shops to have this Halva
Mohan sweets in Vizag,Azad sweets in Ajmer and one another special place in Mumbai Tharu Mukhi Bhandar.I can never forget that one.Have gorged over boxes full of halwa from Tharu at Mumbai.It is a huge hit with all Sindhi community.For those who cant handle too much nuts,they got one version with lesser nuts too.However,you can never have too little nuts.
We love rich mithai. I have even shipped it across India.
However,they do not do international shipping.So here I try to make my humble attempt to fulfill my cravings.
Best part of this sweet is its loaded with nuts.You can use almonds or cashews or both.
I find it as a great way to use the left over Arrowroot powder after Navratri ends.
Tip : You can make it with arrowroot flour or cornflour also.
If you want to make this with cornflour,you can also try the this link from a fellow blogger that inspired us.
