Milk Rava Halwa – Navrate Special

Navaratri, also spelled Navratri or Navarathri, is a nine nights Hindu festival, celebrated in the autumn every year. Thus, this is a nine-day or nine-night Hindu festival which is celebrated in the honor of the divine goddess Devi Durga. This Navaratri celebration happens two times a year. It’s because there are two Navaratris in a year. First, is Chaitra Navaratri which is celebrated in March or April and the second is Sharad Navaratri which is celebrated in October.



To celebrate Ashtami or Navami that is the eighth/ninth day of Navratri, Sooji or Rava halwa is prepared along with Kala Chana (Black chickpeas) and puri as prasad.


Navratri Parsad

I already shared Atta Sooji Halwa, Sooji Gur Ka Halwa, but this Milk Rava Halwa is totally different. In this Rava or Sooji is soaked in a milk for 30 minutes and then it is sauteed in ghee. This halwa is rich in taste, almost like a milkcake. Do try this Halwa…
