About the recipe
Enriched with milk, curd, cardamom powder, and heaps of dry fruits, though Meetha Oliya is made especially for Shitalashtami or Basoda, but trust me, this dessert is so easy to make that you would not mind making it again and again for your loved ones!
Note down its recipe then and prepare a bowlful of this authentic sweet dish at your earliest!
Everyone at my home has a sweet tooth hence, I always make it a point to keep some of the other sweet at home, and often I even make them on the spur.
Also, as far as possible, I use heaps of fruits while making Kaddu Halwa and often they are nutritive like Gond ke Ladoo, Till Mawa Ladoo and Rajasthani Meetha Oliya.
A childhood favorite of mine, Rajasthani Meetha Oliya strikes the perfect balance between a healthy breakfast option and a side sweet or dessert!
My grandmother made it using fresh curd, boiled rice, sugar, milk, and even used heaps of dry fruits like cashew nuts, almonds, pistachios for making Meetha Oliya all the more delicious.
I loved the way she used saffron for beautifully flavoring this traditional dessert – it was such a joy to eat it during our summer vacations, I tell you!
But, if you are more of a savory food fan then you might like Rajasthani Namkeen Oliya and served it chilled just as Meetha Oliya.
