  1. Food color can be addedD
  2. Shelf life of Banana halwa is very less. Stays good for two days in fridge
  3. Adjust the sugar according to your Sweetness. Raisin gave Sweetness so I felt the sugar I added was enough
  4. Any nuts of choice can be added
  5. I preferred cutting the halwa instead you can also enjoy it in a cup
  6. Extra ghee can be added to make halwa rich
