Koova podi in malayalam is what we say for arrowroot powder. It is the thickening agent and is best for making halwa very easily in no time. This powder is very nutritious and easily digestable soft food for infants and also for adults. Its is also the light food which can be consumed on fasting or illness. In this recipe I wanted to give a twist ie the mix of grinded fruit. I have choosen kiwi fruit as it has the its own sweetness cum tangy and thus its a perfect combi. Even strawberries acts very well :) No doubt kids will adore like anything as therez a bite of coconut and kishmish as well. Do try this healthy halwa.

1 Cup Arrowroot Powder

2 cup Water

3 4 tbsp Sugar (can add more or less)

1 Kiwi freshly grind ed into paste

1 tsp Cardamom powder

2 tbsp Kishmish.

Pinch of Green food colour (optional)

2 tbsp Grated Coconut

1 to 2 tbsp Ghee


First take a kadai in which you need to cook the halwa. Add arrowroot powder and dilute it with water. Mix well so that no lumps is formed. Add all the ingredients one by one except ghee and give it a nice mix. Now keep the kadai on flame and cook it well stirring continuously. Cook the halwa till it becomes transparent and semi solid. Add ghee and stir till the ghee leaves its sides of the pan. Now pour this halwa mixture in the greased plate and cut into into desired shape.
