Suji Halwa/Semolina Dessert

My daughter just loves anything sweet…so every few days I have to make something for her…but its not only her… I also have a sweet tooth😇

Today I made this dessert/halwa for her after a really long time.

Halwa is an India dessert which is very common in our Indian households…this dessert is not at all junk and contains everything home made and everything healthy!

There is an interesting story behind this recreation! Once I saw one of my sisters serving me this halwa with pickle….and it was heavenly 😍 since then I have brought this dish to my home as well and I make sure to have it in the same style😁

Here I have a homemade mango pickle topping my halwa/dessert that was made by my sister-in-law and its just amazing!!👍

For everyone who loves halwa…do try it with a pickle and you will thank me for it😋

Here is the recipe for the halwa/dessert….
