Halwa is a very traditional aromatic Indian delicacy that is prepared for most auspicious religious functions, festival and special parties. Indian cuisine is talented in making numerous varieties of halwa that one can make from flour(s), nuts, vegetables, lentils, fruits etc.

Halwa is called by different names such as halawa, halvah, halva, halua etc which actually refers to many type of dense sweet confections served across the Middle East, Asian countries, North Africa, Balkans, Central & Eastern Europe, Malta and the Jewish world. Traditionally the term Halva means “sweet” and is used to describe two types of desserts:

Flour based, this type is slightly gelatinous and made from grain flour typically semolina and the basic primary ingredients used are clarified butter, flour and sugar while the other is the Nut butter based as this type of halwa has a crumbling texture and usually made from sesame paste or other nut butter like sunflower seed butter. The primary ingredients of making this are nut butter and sugar.

Halwa is a rich comforting Indian dessert, made with ghee, very flavourful and extremely luscious and delectable to taste. Gajar ka halwa (carrot halwa) and Suji ka halwa (semolina halwa) are two most popular variety of halwa often prepared during festivals, religious events and celebrations. Other varieties of Halwa are bread halwa, maida halwa, besan halwa or groundnut halwa.

Halwa is popular in a lot of cultures and is be made with a variety of ingredients like carrot, lauki (bottle gourd), semolina, badam (almonds) or raisins etc. They also contain milk or condensed milk and often made with ghee which imparts a pleasing aroma and nice taste that tempts most of us to eat. Halwa is also prepared during festivals like Holi, Janmashtami, Diwali and served as prasad in temples and various religious occasions.
