      Hi Dad,

      Come on you can still have it a teaspoon or bit more and join me for trekking:) How does that sound? :)

      Well, replace sugar with sweetener, whole milk with fat-free milk. And skip the idea of 1/4 cup ghee, limit yourself with 2 teaspoons…like the way I did!

  3. very yummy n inviting halwa dear…
