Halwa is a traditional sweet that can be made with flour, vegetables, and even fruits. How about trying halwa with rusk? For most of us, teatime is not complete without those one or two pieces of rusk. While I got the rusks for this purpose, I had almost half a packet of them, left untouched. I tried to make a quick halwa for a Thursday pooja and trust me the whole process was completed in 15 mins. The taste of the halwa was also very yummy.
I have used cardamom flavored rusk for this halwa. You can use any variety of rusk that is available. The quantity of sugar to be used depends on your tastebuds. As most of the branded rusks are already sweetened, make sure to avoid a lot of sugar. If you want to make a quick and tasty halwa, try making this. I am sure you will love this a lot.
- I have used cardamom flavored rusk , hence avoiding adding cardamom pods to the halwa. You can add them if you are using any other variety of rusks.
- Any type of rusks like the regular ones, sooji rusk, milk rusk, wheat rusk or cardamom flavored rusk can be used to make this halwa.
- Make sure to keep the flame low when roasting the rusk and mix them with milk to avoid burning the bottom.
