Dim er Halwa or Egg Halwa or Aanday ka Halwa is a very popular non-vegetarian Sweet Dish. It’s one of my mother in law’s signature dish and Husband man is a die heart fan of this Halwa. I just followed Mom in law’s recipe line by line as am also a fan of this yummy dessert. This dish is a must in “Shab e Barat” and in my in law’s place they used to prepare different types of Halwa to celebrate , however I being the lazy to the power infinite ended with just one item – the testiest one – Dim er Halwa.

- Add few drops of food color to the egg mixture.
