About ASHOKA HALWA Recipe
Ashoka Halwa is a famous sweet from a humble village ‘Thiruvaiyar’ in Tanjore district of Tamil Nadu. It is also popularly known as 'Thiruvaiyar Halwa' and is often served at weddings. The halwa has a vibrant red color and it simply melts in your mouth because of the heavy dose ghee that goes into it, and if you still can’t resist it which I know is difficult don’t forget to go for a run the next day!!! I tasted this utterly yummy halwa at a very famous rather iconic eatery in Chennai known as Prem’s grama bhojanam which is famous for its menu which majorly consist of millets based preparations and there in the healthy thali they served us this not so healthy sweet. I thoroughly loved it and began to enquire the waiter how it is prepared and he very happily shared the recipe. I made a few variations to the recipe like I did not add the red food coloring, added in a pinch of edible camphor and reduced the amount of ghee. Surprisingly, even with less which ghee the taste remains the same.
