Sooji Halwa is a popular traditional sweet. It is made from semolina (sooji), sugar, milk and loads of ghee. It is infused with cardamom powder and garnished with dry fruits which gives it its unique aroma and crunch.

Chef Akanksha pairs the much-loved sooji halwa with luchi crips which gives it a nice crunch. Sooji Halwa with Luchi Crisps is irresistible.
