  10. your receipes are too tasty.but can we add jaggery instead of sugar for this halwas?

    • Thank you for your kind words. You can add jaggery instead of sugar. However, jaggery will dominate the flavour of other ingredients. But with certain ingredients like ragi/beetroot, you can make halwa with jaggery.
