Now turn off the stove. Transfer th e halwa to a ghee greased plate or bowl. I used stainless steel tiffin box. Keep it in a room temperature or fridge for half an hour. Using knife, cut into any size or shape as per your wish
  8. Yummy karachi halwa is ready to serve.

Always store it in an airtight container.
If your halwa is not cooked good, your halwa would be in rubbery in texture..
If your halwa is overcooked, it will be hard in texture.
Add ghee generously so that your halwa tastes good.
Adding lemon juice to syrup to avoid crystallization.
