Halwa Poori

No festival is ever complete without a specially made pakwaan. One such dish is Halwa Poori, which has been the preferred choice for all festive seasons since time immemorial. An irresistible combo of delicious pooris served with some nice homemade halwa has rightfully found its way into ancient stories and poems. Today I give you the recipe for this perfect festive breakfast or meal. I made this halwa with sooji in desi ghee and decorated with cashews, almonds and raisins. The poori was made with wheat-flour kneaded balls fried in vegetable oil. You would enjoy the cooking as much as you would love the taste of Halwa Poori. Let’s get started!
