To my friends who doesn’t know about Diwali, it is a festival of lights. There is different stories why Diwali is being celebrated. But the basic moral is , it is to celebrate the winning of good over evil. While the ladies in each home were busy making sweets and savouries, kids will be busy in firing crackers. Everyone will be sharing wishes and sweets .

Now coming to the recipe, this is a different halwa from the usual one. Only with handful of ingredients you get delicious halwa.Yes, this is papaya halwa.
