On the happy occasion of Lord Krishna’s Birthday, the air is full of love and excitement. People have been preparing for this festival for days at the end and now that it just another day away we just can’t wait. Lord Krishna was known to be a mischievous child and he loved playing pranks and stealing fresh butter. It’s said that he could eat up a pot full of his favorite butter if given an opportunity. We’ve seen enough pictures of the mischievous Lord Krishna dipping his hand into the pot of butter and looking adorable. Lord Krishna’s birthday is celebrated with a lot of joy and faith. Other than offering him some of his favorite delicious white butter we love offering him the best possible sweets. Moreover, none of our festivals are complete without some sweet dishes. Every festival comes with a variety of amazing sweet dishes that we lovingly cook for the offerings and for our family. Here are some great dishes that you can cook in under thirty minutes for this lovely festival.

1. Sooji ka Halwa

This dessert is quick to make and very simple. You will need some sooji and milk and some ghee. Use some powdered sugar. Put some sooji in a pan and roast it till it’s golden brown.
