Great little breakfast! I only made 1 serving, I knew the hubby wouldn't like it. If you grew up, like me, eating cream of wheat this is what it reminded me of. It was very easy and good.

This suji ka halwa is such an easy and amazing recipe! All-time favorite dessert. I do make it once a week for my family as it is nutritious also.

  • Alia, Lahore

Just made the halwa like half an hr ago. Loved how it tasted. In addition to raisins, you can also add coconut. Or for Halwa puri style halwa you can add a 1/2 teaspoon yellow color & omit the raisins.
