Singhare Ka Halwa is a popular recipe that is made during fasting or vrat. Singhare Ke atta ka Halwa is very easy to make and just requires very few ingredients.

We are generally keep fast during Ekadashi, Navratri, Shivratri, sawan and etc. Many people stay on vrat during Tuesdays, Thursdays, Monday and Saturdays.

In these times, we cannot consume Maida, Suji, or Besan. Because these are considered “Aanaj”. And we are very strict about fasting. We must eat – “Satvik Food”! We can eat Fruits but we cannot eat Aanaj.
