Coconut Rava Halwa

Coconut Rava Halwa

Coconut Rava Halwa is a nutty delicious halwa you can make with fresh coconut. This halwa is quite easy to make and gets done quickly. With so many festivals and poojas, this sweet makes an apt Naivedyam.

I have mentioned about our handmade clippings and files that we have been safekeeping for over 20 years now. Though its been our wish to try out all the recipes from those files, we hardly ever find time to cook all those recipes. However, once in a while we take out a file and check out the recipes.

With so many festivals always coming around, we tend to check out for new dishes to make and offer as Neivedyam. This March we have Holi and Ugadi to celebrate. While we have always either played Holi at office or joined our community celebrates, Ugadi is always a grand celebration at home. This being our Telugu New Year’s day, we make elaborate feast and after pooja, we partake the food. Amma normally makes some payasam or halwa. This Coconut Halwa turns out to be an excellent choice to make for Ugadi. Not to mention the fact that this stays good for over a week when you can enjoy a small portion everyday.

We are starting the March BM#86, week 1, where I will be sharing some Festival Dishes this week.

  1. Wow that is one flavorful and delicious neivedhyam valli. Adding coconut to the rava kesari such an interesting idea .. Waiting to see your ugadi spread soon.

  2. This is such a delicious variation to regular sooji halwa. Coconut adds so much flavor and texture to the dish. I’m going to try this some time.

  3. Back in India we’d love to add dry dessicated coconut in rava halwa but never the fresh one. This sounds super tempting to add fresh coconut, I will try it.

  4. Hi Srivalli
    Lovely halwa and looks tempting.. I must mention again that the best part is getting to know the various traditional receipes and festivals around the country.. it looks simple to cook using easily available ingredients so definitely will try it out Thanks for sharing

  5. No matter how frequently we make halwa, still it is always in demand. I love to have coconut in halwa, but my kids and husband are averse to it, so stopped adding. Your halwa is prompting me to make some, at least to satiate myself 🙂 Will make your way with fresh coconut. I’m sure I’ll fall in love with it

  6. We usually add dry coconut grated in rawa halwa. Adding fresh coconut in halwa a new thing to me. Looking very delicious, this coconut rawa halwa a great offering or swwet for festivals.
