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.

A great teatime snack and kids love it too! In South India it’s called Achappam and Rose Cookies in other places! Scandinavian traditional Rosette Cookies are extremely similar, except they dip the warm cookies in sugar and cinnamon just like churros.

Sabudana Vada is a very popular Maharashtrian snack that is prepared with very basic 5 ingredients. It’s crunchy on the outside while being very soft and airy inside. Also referred to as Subadana Tikki, this popular teatime snack is vegetarian and is enjoyed a lot during Navratri festival. While these fritters are most commonly enjoyed deep-fried, it is equally tasty when you bake it.
