Karha Prashad.. (aate ka halwa)

When it some to some sweets of daily eating, punjabi households bring up halwas. Be it religious ceremonies, or the arrival of a new bride, or any festivity, the Halwa holds a rather important place in the culinary repertoire of most Indian house-wives. I have grown up eating some of the best versions and this particuar one is a monsoon favourite. The Aaate ka Halwa is the Karha Prashaad served in Gururdwaaras all across the world and i have grown up eating this on rainy days.
