Rajgira Halwa (Sira)

Rajgira halwa/sira or Amaranth pudding is a kind of traditional Marwari cuisine. It is fasting and festival dessert that you can be made in less than 15 mins. This halwa is completely gluten-free but it is loaded with dry fruits and rich in flavor. When you eat, the texture melts in the mouth.

It is an Indian festival dish that made on Navratri, Shivratri or Ekadashi. But for me, it's kind of midnight sweet treat as I am midnight hungry bird.

You can try it on a regular day as well. This recipe can be varied according to your preferences. My mom used to make this halwa (sira) especially on Ekadashi and paired with Sabudana (tapioca pearls) khichdi.

This one of my all-time favorite desserts. The best thing about this recipe is, made with few ingredients just like ghee, sugar, Rajgira ka atta (Amaranth flour) and dry fruits. But, if you want more richness you can include khoya, which will give this recipe a sinful Rajwadi flavor and it is addictive.

It is prepared like this in my family but I like the simplest one. It tastes best when served hot or warm. This is one of my midnight sweet craving recipes.

In the new year try a rich, delicious sinful dessert that can be made quickly.
