- Kozhikodan Halwa / Halva :

Kozhikodan Halwa also spelled Halva are sweets from Kozhikode or Calicut, Kerala, India where the most special and delicious Halwas are made in the state of Kerala.

There is a street in Kozhikode named SM Street , Sweet Meat Street called Mithai Theruvu in Malayalam, the name given by European traders because of the many shops lined up on the streets selling Kozhikodan Halwa which they called as Sweet Meat .

In the past, this historic street was the busiest shopping and commercial center at the heart of Kozhikode and today the street is still busy with many shops that sell anything and everything including the famed Halwa, Banana Chips (Upperi) and other.

Below is a picture of Kozhikodan Halwa/Halva from Kozhikode (Calicut), Kerala, India. I was blessed to have tasted these different flavors of Halwa from this historic street. Very delicious. I will never get tired eating Halwa, my favorite is always the black one, which I have tasted in Allepey, Kerala, India during a festival.
