Rose Rava Kesari Halwa with Poppy Seeds for Naivedyam on Durga Asthami!

Rose Rava Kesari Halwa with Poppy Seeds for Naivedyam on Durga Asthami!
Celebrating life with sweets, sweet ones' and cherishing the sweet memories of being together with family and friends is indeed a privilege and a blessing !

Given an opportunity I would like to freeze the sweetest moments of life with the festive food, decor, fun of being together plus sweets and tons of sweets. There is something special about Indian sweets. There is a custom in India to  make sweets at home for festivals and special occassions, offer naivedyam to Gods and Goddesses, then share it with family and friends as a note of love and affection.

The very blessed Indian sweets rock around the world, because it is made from scratch with 'Loads of Passion' and shared with ' Loads of Love'. 

Navratri is a special time to offer prayers for spiritual enlightenment to Goddess Durga, epitome of strength, peace and purity.

All time favorite family dessert!
