Capsicum halwa is a typical, delicious halwa prepared with capsicum. What halwa with a mirchi?? Yes…. Don’t hesitate to try it. The halwa is absolutely delicious with its unique taste and flavor. I came across this recipe when I was searching for recipe using capsicum.
I am amused to try and taste it myself for the first time. You definitely got to taste this yummy capsicum halwa. When I gave it to my husband who don’t like bell peppers, he couldn’t even guess that it is made with capsicum and told me it is like Paal halwa (milk halwa). However my mission of making him eat capsicum accomplished. Also, today is shravanthi’s 2nd birthday so a special recipe for a special day.
