Halwa - Also pronounced as alwa by Kongas.

Halwa is a sweet preparation available in a million flavours across the country, and often mistaken for an aphrodisiac.

To Give halwa means, to con or deceive at monumental proportions.

Though the phrase has been in existence for a while, it gained mass popularity after Kollywood Actor Sathyaraj once gave halwa to an Actress Kasthuri in a Tamil movie.


Velu: Hey Balu, Congrats man - outstanding work on that project. Very impressive! I'm sure your career is now taken care of. Your boss gave you a good hike No?

Balu: Myru, he gave halwa......*walks away*
