Besan Suji Halwa (Traditional Style) - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Though I am not a person with sweet tooth but I love this yummilicious silky mouth watering dish. This is a traditional dish which is cooked in every Indian house:)
I am making this in my style adding besan in it... The aroma of besan while roasting it in desi ghee is just amazing & I am sure you just cant wait to dip your spoon in it for that heavenly taste:)
