  5. Indumathi - custard powder has the tendency to become thick. If you follow the recipe as it is, it is not possible to go wrong. You must give time for it to set or you can refrigerate for few minutes and then make slices. Another possibility is- you could have under cooked it. You must cook well until it leaves the sides of the pan as seen in the picture above. The halwa will follow the ladle when stirring.

  6. I tried it.... it was mouth watering n everyone here loved it... thanks for the recipe
