How to Make Bombay Ice Halwa

Hello Foodies,
        Bombay Ice Halwa is also known as Mahim Halwa. It is one of the most loved sweet delicacies amongst mithai lovers across India. It is not as difficult as it may appear after looking at the final product, but one thing is sure about making this Halwa is you need a little bit of patience. You can certainly make this sweet at home with simple and easily available ingredients. If you don't like to add any inorganic color, you can make it naturally yellow by adding saffron strands, it will give yellow color to Halwa. I made it by using semolina, milk, sugar, and ghee. I am telling you all it tastes amazing and it is a very unique and delicious dessert.
