PAPAYA ‘N’ GRAPES HALWA


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 😊.
