  1. I made this Halwa today, and it turned out good. Thanks for the recipe In the video, you added lime juice but in the written instructions you didn’t mention about adding lime juice. I didn’t add though. Why should we add lime juice?

    • Hey Suja, thanks a lot. I must have forgotten to write it, thanks for reminding. Lime juice is added to prevent crystallisation of sugar. Glad u liked it 🙂
