Soojhi Halwa (Semolina Sweet)


Soojhi halwa is a pakistani delicacy which is widely served with pooris (fried bread) and parathas in breakfast. This is a popular dish of Lahore and people over there are crazy about it on weekends and other holidays. It is also very popular during the Month of Ramadan as it is very energetic, filling and nutritious but if you are on diet please dont eat it, it is very fattening, but trying this lavish dish once a month does not make any difference…… Enjoy!
