KASHI HALWA / GHARDUDI HALWA

I have not tasted this Sweet for many years. My Mom used to prepare this and in those days we children really enjoyed any sweet or eateries made by her. The taste was different and it lingered for so many days, even today the taste is fresh as if i have had it minutes ago. When my hubby bought 2 Bottle gourds, the first thing that came to my mind was preparing Halwa . I didn't utter a single word about it, just waiting for the occasion.  Today, Jan 24 is my hubbys B'day. I prepared it without any one's notice and kept this sweet on the dining table at the time of breakfast. He was surprised and I was smiling...
