anyway, i would like to add some more tips, suggestions and variations to karachi halwa recipe. firstly, in this recipe, i have shown a medium softness texture which is neither soft and nor hard. some prefer to have it very soft and some prefer to have very hard. basically, if you need it soft, you may switch off the stove 5-6 minutes early as shown in this recipe. if you need it hard, you may cook it for 5-6 minutes as shown in this recipe. secondly, be generous with the ghee addition and do not limit yourselves while adding to it. you may need to add it till it absorbs. lastly, i would heavily recommend using non-stick kadai for such halwa recipe. it would be easy to stir and eventually to shape it.
