  1. Hi Sailaja,

    Love shrimps in all forms, this one is absolutely tempting. Like the addition of khus khus and coconut...will try this version.

    Between, I am not good with measurements...hmmm, I used 1 and 1/2 cups of seeds and 1 cup of sugar. Yeah...its good to mix, sugar and ghee too, halwa comes out nicely...regardless what we do...
