Walnut Halwa

I m not a good writer, i can talk (its go with my profession)  but when it comes to writing, its ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!
I m trying my level best to keep it good. Lemme C, hope to go better with every new post.

Walnut is a good source of all important omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids has a lot of health benefits ranging from cardiovascular protection, better mental function, anti-inflammatory benefits in asthma, rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory diseases like eczema and psoriasis.

Some dont favour Walnuts for its bitter taste. They say the bitterness is due to high tannin level in the skins. I never had a problem coz i normally buy Nuts and Dry Fruits from souq (Market place).  Fresh walnuts are light-colored under their skins.

when it comes to any festivitiy there is this tradition of making sweets, i was getting a bit bored of making the same old  paal payasam (its our family dessert:) ). Got this recipe from a magazine. Tasted great.

Here goes the recipe . Will post the pics soon!!!
