Festivals in India go back in time when there are unwritten customs and traditions that we follow, and they are passed on to us through generations. Every festival has something special to offer and every region across India, including the smallest of the villages and towns have their favorite food to boast about.
And I have a few sweets that I can boast off too. I grew up with sweets like Tirunelveli Halwa that you will find only in specific shops in the town of Tirunelveli.
Even today, every time I think of making a halwa, I think of the famous Tirunelveli Halwa. My mother always used to fill this gap by trying to make this halwa almost every Diwali.
But as I travelled across continents, I missed having the Tirunelveli Halwa. As I tasted many halwas in the market, I came to the conclusion that no replica could match the halwa from Tirunelveli. Not even the Bombay Halwa.
Want to know what is special about this halwa?
It's cooked in ghee and sometimes lots of nuts and has a melt in the mouth texture. It has a rich reddish golden glaze, a gummy, jelly-like texture, its crumbly taste all contribute to making this Tirunelveli halwa feature in my bucket list of things. I kept telling myself that the only way I could make this happen is when I visit my ancestral town again.
But very recently, I came across a website HitNat.com, started by brothers Anand, Chakkravarthi and Prakash who grew up in South Tamil Nadu and felt the same way that I feel now.
As they had moved away for work, their cravings for the unique sweets and savories of their native place followed them. They longed for the simple, homemade delicacies that came out of certain much-loved shops in small towns in the Southern belt.
When we connected with each other, I was excited to order in my favorite delicacies that I used to have while growing up.
