Suji halwa / rava kesari


Celebrate Sri Rama Navami with this kid-favorite halwa. I used milk instead of water since in our family prasadams are made with milk. Since milk is used, the dessert won’t last long. Milk enhances the taste too. This can be used as stuffing for poli/bakshalu.

Take care to not have lumps in the halwa. The roast is also very important. It should be roasted on low flame to get nice aroma. I stop as soon as I see change in color.
