Suji Halwa Recipe

Halwa, a.k.a., sheera is a popular Indian dessert that is made by roasting the ingredients in pure desi ghee along with dry fruits, water, sugar, and dollops of flavor. The dish sees a number of variations in terms of the ingredients used. For example, vegetable lovers can whip up a gorgeous gajar ka halwa; fans of dry fruits and nuts will definitely love themselves some badam ka halwa; and classic halwa fanatics can never have enough of besan ka halwa, moong dal ka halwa, or suji halwa.

Suji (semolina or rava) makes for an excellent choice when making halwa. The granular ingredient mixes deliciously well with the rest of the ingredients to turn out into a rich halwa. The dish is popular throughout India, especially during celebrations and festivities. So gear up for Baisakhi with this suji halwa recipe!
