About Arrowroot Halwa: Recipe

Traditionally we call this as Arrowroot halbayi. Which is easy to digest and considered as a very light. Arrowroot powder’s “Easy to digest” quality is qualified to make infant food as well as to treat diarrhoea. It is usually consumed in a porridge form in our region. Usually 1 table spoon of powder is mixed with little water (according to the consistency) and cooked until it is shiny and glossy. Then with preferred seasoning like salt or jaggery.
