Sooji Halwa is one of the best parts of any Indian celebration. It’s warm, tasty, and a great food for all ages. I made it for Diwali, Hindu New Year, and ate half the batch on my own. It’s really meant to be shared. It’s a wonderful dessert, and will warm you up on a rainy day. It’s also a fabulous pick-me up if you’re not feeling that great. The best part is that it is a super easy Indian recipe. So enjoy this recipe, but more importantly, enjoy the Halwa..
