Makki Halwa Recipe (healthy Corn Halwa)

I simply love the rustic flavours of this Halwa and I can finish the entire bowl myself. Original recipe uses a lot of desi Ghee. Now that we all have turned to become more healthy with our eating habbits, this is a great alternate way of cooking it with less ghee. The taste is not very different and you can enjoy it without worrying of putting on weight.
