These thin sheets of sweet can be made with just 4 main ingredients at home.It takes only 20 mins to make them but it has to dry for at least 4 hours.Bombay Ice Halwa can be prepared using either rava (sooji) or cornflour.The ones made with sooji has a soft ,chewy texture whereas the traditional method uses cornflour which has a creamy and crisp texture.I love the latter one especially for its silky texture that just melts in your mouth.The addition of nuts and saffron gives this simple sweet a richer look,thus making it perfect for all celebrations at home.
