  1. Is the powder milk necessary? I have a box of dates sitting in my fridge that no ones eating. Wanted to make this halwa...but dont have any powder milk at home.

  2. Hi,
    Thank you for your question. It is necessary to use some milk to give the halwa a real good test. We think you can replace the powder milk with condense milk.

  3. Hi ..Love you recipes as they have helped me many times. Can I use ready made date paste to do this instead of making my own paste? Can you please other types of deshi misti recipes on the website? Thanks
