Winter is surely the best time of the year for foodies. There are just too many delectable options of different cuisines and taste palettes to relish. Be it savoury Palak Paneer or sweet Gajar Ka Halwa, the list of winter-special delicacies can go on and on. When it comes to halwa, some of my favourites are Gajar ka Halwa, Moong Dal ka Halwa, Besan ka Halwa, and Badam ka Halwa. You might be surprised to hear that there is something called Ande ka Halwa and it tastes really delicious. Not just in taste, this dessert is good for your health as well.

We love waking up to the smell of halwa getting cooked in good-quality ghee and mixing it with milk and cream. Well, the winter season is a beautiful time to enjoy all these sweets. Among the huge variety of halwa that we have tasted, ande ka halwa is surely one of the most unique recipes. Most people’s first reaction to this dessert is quite awkward but their opinions change after tasting some of it.

From taste to advantages, this dessert is loaded with everything. Cooked with the goodness of ghee, milk, eggs, dry fruits, and cardamoms, the aroma is mouth-watering. Apart from being delicious, it is protein-rich as well, according to a report by The Times of India. Each bite of ande ka halwa melts in your mouth and makes it too difficult to resist eating more.

Ande ka halwa has no such confirmed origin story. We are still not completely aware of the origin of this dessert. It is widely famous and believed to be a part of Bangladeshi and Pakistani cuisines. This halwa recipe is one of many winter-special desserts. Loaded with deliciousness, foodies love to relish it in the chilly weather of the winter season. It is believed that the halwa helps us to stay warm.
