Deepavali is nearing and many of you would be wondering what kind of sweetmeats to make or buy. For centuries, Indian sweetmeats have been part of all Indian festivals and also as offerings during prayers. However, sugar is bad for us and the children. We do give an excuse of, “I only eat them during Deepavali, and other times I do not indulge much in sweet stuff”. Well, I think it is perfectly alright to make any sweet items as long as we give it away and share with others; So that you eat less! In any case, I have cut down the sugar tremendously in this Cornflour Halwa recipe and have added lots of raisins to make up for the lack of caster sugar. Raisins are healthy and you can choose not to fry them too.
