Nawabi Mithaas is heirloom recipe made from milk solids. The special spice added to it gives a unique flavor to it.
Due to my father suffering from diabetes , we had almost stopped preparing and eating sweets in our family. But at my in laws place, it was customary to have sweets after each meal. If there was no sweet at the dastarkhwan , my father in law including my bros in laws used to ask for sugar.
Preparation of different varieties of Halawa, mithai were our daily routine. I have learnt many muslim traditional recipes from my ma in law via telephony. Nawaabi Mithaas is one of them. I have also share one more recipe from her Ande ka Burrada. And who judges if it is correct in taste and texture.Mr.K, the biggest critic in our family we say.
