Asoka halwa and click entry..

          When I saw Asoka halwa in Cookery corner,I was sooo tempted to make it...This is the first time I am trying this sweet...And it came out very nice...I simply followed the method and ingredients...Actually, laavanya too have told that she took it from Mrs.Mano's delicacies... But thanks to her for bringing to our eyes!Very easy to make,tasted great...Here is the picture of the halwa I made...!

Ashoka

      And below is my humble,simple contribution to Jugalbandhi's this month click - Nuts event!
