Sooji Halwa

I have a long list of favorite Indian breakfast and Sooji Halwa tops the list especially if served with some Khasta Ajwain Poori (recipe coming soon). Sooji Halwa is also referred to as sheera and is a famous Indian pudding prepared withsemolina. Sooji is semolina and Halwa is sweet porridge or pudding. It’s prepared all over India and has several different names. Rava Halwa, Kesari Bhath, Sajjige and Shujir Payeshare few of those names I am familiar with.

This year, for the first time in a very long time, we are celebrating the festive season in full swing. Avyan is at an age where he can understand these things and he is also thoroughly enjoying it. Yesterday, we had a Diwali Potluck Party at our home and it was a blast. There were a wide variety of delicious treats and I really wish I had taken a photo of the entire spread! My contribution to the spread was Gajar Halwa (Carrot Pudding) and Moong Daal Khasta Kachori (Spiced Mung Bean Stufffed Flaky Dumplings).

My favorite season is finally here with longer daylight, beautiful sunshine and pretty flowers! Now, all I ask from the weatherman is not to predict anymore frequent showers, storm or anything that takes away the Spring. Last week was pretty dull and boring with non-stop rain and cold winds, but what kept me excited was seeing Arvind finalizing the new design for blog. In between all the crazy workload, my sweetheart somehow managed to find time for planning, writing, fixing bugs and creating this new look. I feel SO proud and yes, I know :) I am one lucky girl!
