My Tip:

firstly, keep stirring continuously else lumps will be formed in halwa. furthermore, add ghee in regular intervals as it doesn’t consume more ghee. additionally, add lemon juice without fail to prevent sugar from crystallisation. finally, use colour of your choice and do not over cook as they turn rubbery and chewy. also undercooking will make halwa taste raw and sticky.
