How to make Nagori halwa at home :
Nagori is a small, crispy and crumbly poori made with semolina and ghee, which is served with aloo masala sabzi and kesari sooji halwa. All you have to do is pierce the middle of the poori with your finger (just like you do with a golgappa), stuff it with kesari halwa and then dunk into the spicy gravy and gulp it down for the most unique burst of flavours. This classic savoury- sweet combination of kesari halwa and sooji poori is truly one-of-a-kind. The best part is you can also stuff the nagori puri with masala aloo ki sabzi if you do not prefer sweet things for breakfast.
For nagori puris, all you need to do is make small golgappa sized puri by taking sooji dough, fry it until crisp and golden brown. For the halwa, heat the ghee in a separate pan, add semolina and roast it till golden colour. Add cardamom, saffron and sugar, mix it well. Garnish with chopped nuts and serve it with crispy nagori puris and masaledar aloo ki sabzi. Slurping, right?
