Sohan Halwa

By Rita Jamshed Kapadia 1 comment

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.

  • Shelf Life: 120 Days
  • Ingredients: Corn Flour, Desi Ghee, Dry Fruits, Sugar
  • Sohan Halwa is made from pure desi ghee, milk, sugar and other quality ingredients. Almonds, pistachios and cardamom are added to give richness to the flavour.
