When it comes to desserts, we Indians are indeed guilty of bingeing on too much of them. From malpua to shahi tukda, rabri to jalebi - there are so many desserts out there that we can enjoy. Halwa too is one comforting Indian dessert that we can gorge on any time, any day. The soul-stirring recipe is not just melt-in-the-mouth but also extremely easy to cook. Whether you enjoy lauki halwa or sooji halwa, atte ka halwa or pumpkin halwa - there are so many halwa ingredients to choose from. But can you imagine a halwa that is prepared with a Parle-G biscuit? Believe it or not, a blogger actually made halwa with Parle-G and it grabbed plenty of eyeballs on the internet. Take a look:
The video was shared on Twitter by a user named @MFuturewala and it has received over 7k views and hundreds of comments. The original recipe was created by a food blogger who titled it, "Parle-G biscuit ki anoki recipe [a unique recipe made with Parle-G]." First, the blogger took some clarified butter or ghee in a pan. Next, she added the Parle-G biscuits to the ghee and roasted it on both sides. The roasted biscuits were then crushed with the help of a mortar and pestle. Lastly, the halwa was prepared with water, sugar and milk powder to which the crushed biscuit mixture was added and topped with pistachios, cashew nuts and then made into balls.
Although Parle-G is a biscuit that enjoys a fan following of its own, the Parle-G halwa did not go down well with internet users. Many complained that this bizarre dessert recipe was thoroughly ruining the humble biscuit. "Crime has been committed," wrote one user while another said, "You can do it with just wheat flour, ghee and sugar, don't need parle G."
