Halwa Poori is a traditional Old age recipe prepared with Halwa ( a Semolina dish Sweetned with Sooji , Brown Sugar , Nuts , Ghee and Water ) and Stuffed inside a Wheat flour dough and Deep Fried. Instead of deep frying I Pan fried like Paratha . In some parts of India Halwa is served with Puffed Bread’s or Poori’s . This is a traditional dish which my Mom makes and Pack for our Lunch Box or during Festival season as Dessert with Some Rice dishes  and tastes best on its Own .
