Sooji/ Semolina Halwa

In many households, the hard workers come from office in a cranky mood. While we know food lifts the spirits, something sweet and from their childhood makes them smile again.

Today I shall share my recipe of suji/ Semolina halwa. Is is a sweet dish..aka..dessert. I make halwa on any auspicious occasion or festival such as Navratris, birthday of any of my family member. Halwa is distributed as prasad in gurudwaras and temples. It is very delicious and lip smacking.
