Have anybody here heard about Khazla ?

It was available in Chandni Chowk shops in my childhood, I have not seen it since long.......
I did not fully understand the dread term "Terminal Illness" until I saw Terminal 1 D of Delhi Airport.

Mysore pak is a real good sweet. Though bengali my mother use to make it frequently when we were small. She has learned it from one of her freinds. I have never tasted the original Karnatak one, but what my mother made was really yummy. I have not heard about Khazla but would like to know more about it. Also where i can get it in Delhi now, so that I can pick some of it during my next visit.

Do try the new version introduced a few years ago by Coimbatore's well known Sri Krishna Sweets. It is a melt in the mouth, ghee laden confection. I think they have renamed it Mysurpa.

I love Malpuas but only the North Indian ones, last had them at Mallik sweet house at CP in Delhi. They were divine. Imagine my overwhelming disappointment when I bought some so called "malpua' in Mumbai which tasted, and felt like the leather sole of my slippers!

Moong dal halwa, also last enjoyed at its ghee laden best at Malliks of Delhi, is also a favourite.

Extra fine Rava ladoo with generous portions of cashew nut, available in Tamil Nadu.

Thick stuffed ghee laden Gujarati puran polis, and their even tastier South Indian counterpart the Thengai [coconut] poli especially the one made with jaggery.

Home made Maharashtrian Karanji with coconut, cashew and mawa stuffing and flaky pastry crust. I once ate a yummy Kerala version with jaggery instead of sugar.

Good quality Bengali sandesh, and very hard to obtain Patisapta.

The list is endless .............

There is a sweet which is orange coloured, topped with dry fruits and looks like square jelly piece. A few called it halwa. I DOn't know what its really called or which part of the country it originally belong to but it tastes great.

Is this what you're talking about? If it is, it's called Bombay Halwa

Yes, this is variously called Muscat halwa, Karachi halwa and other similar names. It also comes in other colours like pink and green, not just in orange. Or it used to anyway. If it is not made of the finest ingredients, it can also taste like sweetened blubber!

In Mumbai, Usman Suleiman Halwai is famous for this particular confection, so is Royal Halwa, but I dont see these sweets much anymore. It is somewhat similar in texture to what is known in the west as Turkish Delight or the Arabic sweet Halkum or Lukuma.

A tastier Kerala variant is the black coloured "Calicut Halwa", made of coconut milk, jaggery, ghee and cashew nuts - I think. Here too, the taste depends on the quality of the ingredients and the end product can range from blubber to melt in the mouth heaven.

EDIT: Thanks for reminding me, Bombay Halwa, that is it.
