The inspiration for this whole wheat halwa is the Sikh classic ‘karha prashad’. This low fat dish contains cardamom, raisins, and nuts. My kids love it on a cold day as an after school snack. Also served at ashtmi, towards the end of navaratri.
This is my all-time favorite snack. I make it at every party and it is always a hit.
When I first visited my in-laws my mother-in-law had made gasagase payasa for us. I have been a huge fan of this dessert since then. I like it cold, thinned out with a little milk.
This is my favourite dry chutney. Nuvvu is the Telugu word for Til or Sesame seeds. This powder is great eaten with rice. It also adds a lovely flavor when sprinkled into Andhra kooras (sabjis).
This is a sweet prepared with carrots.
