What good is a celebration without the savouries and desserts? Back here, every occasion and festival calls for special sweets that adds to the traditional value. I captured this shot on my way to the Haji Ali Darga, this is a sweet made of semolina (also known as rava or suji here). While the plain white variety is called sheera and usually offered as Prasad in hindu poojas, the orange hued one is called as kesari in Tamil and often made to express joy and glee.

  3. It’s colorful, all right, Kamakshi! I thought it might be carrot halwa, which I have heard of but don’t think I’ve ever seen.
    But evidently not.
    I love those little fried pretzel dessert cakes that are soaked in syrup. I forget what their name is, but they’re yummy!

    • I think you are talking about Jalebies! I love them too! my mum makes amazing carrot halva too, so you are most welcome to drop by and we have the feast on dear friend!
