basically custard halwa recipe is almost very similar to my previous recipe of karachi halwa or corn flour halwa. both share the same properties of translucent and jelly behaviour which makes colourful and attractive. perhaps kids would definitely love custard powder halwa recipe. having said that i would be very cautious while serving to them. this because of the corn flour can cause digestion problem to them. also comparatively it contains high sugar content and i would stop them having it after 1-2 servings.

how to prepare custard halwasome easy and must recommendations to follow while preparing the custard powder halwa recipe. firstly, i dissolved the custard powder and sugar with water before transferring to cooking pan. otherwise the custard powder may form lumps if added directly to warm water in pan. secondly, after adding the custard mixture, do not forget to continuously stir till it forms a lump. lastly, i have used vanilla flavoured custard powder and i would heavily recommend to use it. alternatively you can add vanilla essence on top of custard and sugar mixture.

finally i would like to highlight my other dessert recipes collection from my blog. this includes, rava kesari, bread halwa, paan kulfi, donut recipe, rasmalai, custard ice cream, fruit custard, phirni recipe, shahi tukda, choco lava cake, mango pudding and chum chum recipe. in addition do visit my other recipes collection with this recipe post of custard powder halwa recipe,
