Water Chestnut Halwa/ सिंघाड़े का हलवा

Singhada fruit is commonly seen in north eastern part of India. The fruit is of green color. This fruit is grown in temporary flowing water and it tastes slightly sweet.

It has many beneficial properties like its high in fiber, rich in vitamin B, zinc, potassium, iron and calcium. It acts like a coolant for our body. 

 We can make halwa, sabji, chat, salad, tikki and many more dishes

by using fresh singhada. 
And we can also make poori, halwa, burfi by using its flour.
