The Sohan Halwo is known as a jaw breaker. Be careful when biting into it, it is rock solid. But thats what it makes it last for 3 months.
We used to buy this Sohan Halwa (mithai) from Ahmedabad to take for relatives living abroad. Why? Because this Sohan Halwa would keep for months and not go bad.
