Banana Halwa

Wow, it's Diwali time! I just love this festival, it is full of positive vibes. Lights, guests, party, get togethers and of course, SWEETS......yumm!! Oh come on, this is the time to say yes to sugar!!
This Diwali, being a little busy, I am trying to take out time for my HOMEMADE DELICIOUS SWEETS and this halwa is a start!! I have made sooji halwa many times before but with bananas it is a big super-duper hit. I bet you can't stop at just a spoonful. So try this halwa on Diwali and cook the natural way!!!

You need
1 cup Semolina (sooji)
6 bananas (chopped)
2 and 1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cashews (chopped)
1/3 cup clarified butter (ghee)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
few raisins


1. Heat ghee in a pan and fry cashews for few seconds.

2.Put in semolina and fry till lightly browned (do not overdone it). Add sugar and milk and stir till the halwa thickens.

3. Now add bananas, raisins and vanilla. Mix well and serve hot.

Serves 5


  1. Hayırlı akşamlar, muzlu helvanızın çok leziz ve iştah açıcı bir görüntüsü var. Ellerinize, emeğinize sağlık.


  2. Interesting version with my fav, bananas. I like this great invention.
