I would like to post Bombay halwa recipe with wheat maida and also cornflour .... I want to just make you all clear about the looks and texture of halwa .... following post will help you all to decide which one to choose to be frank each will give you unique taste and texture... wheat is healthier than maida but it gives more taste than wheat this will resemble the local sweet stalls Bombay halwa and  cornflour will give the same texture you buy from Sri Krishna sweet stalls and other familiar shops.. I meant the chewy texture...

Sugar                   - 2  cups
