This is a lovely fruit halwa,with no colour added.The colour of the fruit,on its own
sheds a lovely golden yellow colour .
While I was mixing the halwa only,I thought to add fresh grapes ,and try out this
combination.The colour changed to an amazing maroon colour,and the taste was too
awesome!All loved it 😊.
