Khus Khus Halwa - Khas Khas Halwa - Poppy Seeds Halwa

Khus Khus Halwa is a Nutritious, Delicious & Rich Halwa Recipe, made with Poppy seeds, Sugar & Ghee. Ground Poppy seeds are simmered & cooked till thick, then Sugar & Ghee are added to enrich the taste. Flavour & texture of this Halwa is so Unique.Like other Halwa this Halwa is not Gooey. It has Granule Texture. I am a Big Fan of this Halwa. Poppy Seeds are natural Coolants,which reduces Body heat. Normally before &  after delivery we have this Halwa to make body cool.Also made during Special Occasions like Diwali,New year,Ugadi & birthdays.
