Thank you soo much for this valuable information….I don’t know why I didn’t find it on the net in the past years but I have always been in confusion when searching for calories in Indian sweets….most of the times they were either under rated or over rated………but this calorie estimation seems reasonable….especially for rava halwa (every site said it contains 400-500 cals, but I was sure that it cudn’t be so high)!

Thanks again!
