Black Halwa (karuppu Halwa)

Black Halwa (Karuppu Halwa) is a  famous Rice halwa of Kerala - a rare delicacy.This is called Black because of the colour of the Halwa -as it is done with Jaggery Syrup or Black Jaggery(Karuppu Katti) sometimes.It is not easily available in other States.Can be done at home in 40-45 mins using raw rice flour (little maida can also be added to make it taste good).Very tasty is the dish that I wish to share the recipe with U all this Onam.Enjoy ur Evening time with this Halwa.BonAppetit!.
