Madugula Halwa is a very popular halwa from Madugula, Visakhapatnam Districts in Andhra Pradesh. It is best when served hot with dripping ghee. It tastes heavenly and also partially guilt free packed with the goodness of Wheat Milk, Cashew Nuts, Badam Nuts, Sugar, Cow Ghee & Water. Madugula, a non-descript village 70 km from Vizag, over a century has become a household name in the three districts of north Andhra and many other parts of the state due to its sweet dish famously called Madugula Halwa.
The Halwa was first made by Dangeti Dharma Rao in 1890. Now the fourth generation of his family is continuing to make the sweet which has a unique recipe consisting of wheat milk. The sweet is made of wheat milk, sugar, dry fruits and loads of ghee. Over a 100 years ago, Dharma Rao was experimenting with various sweet recipes that can be stocked up for a month and came out with the idea of halwa which later on down the lane has become famous as Madugula Halwa.
