My Tip:

1. Do not grind the makhana very fine. 2. Stir the flour continuously while roasting it otherwise it may burn as it is very delicate flour. 3. The quantity of sugar can be increased. Do not decrease it otherwise the halwa won’t be sweet. 4. Always roast the makhana before grinding as they might have caught moisture and become soft.
