Muscoth halwa is a delicious coconut halwa which taste so yummy. If you are a coconut lover then you will love it for sure.
A.J.J brand is the only brand which makes muscoth halwa in my place. I totally love it. This halwa has full of coconuty flavour and it taste completely different from normal halwa. This is my kind of halwa.
When i looked online there was no much recipe for it. I found a recipe of the real A.J.J halwa(from their factory) from a youtube video, But there was no measurements for it. So i wrote down my own measurements and made it my own way. It turned out super delicious.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
