Chocolate Semolina Pudding on the eve of Durga Puja

Today is the first day of Durgapuja, Mahashasti. On this day Goddess Durga arrives to the Mortal world from her heavenly adobe, accompanied by her children through the water filled copper pot that comes in the early morning of Mahasasti. Bodhon is performed during the evening of shasti. Bodhon mean Pranpratishta (bringing to life) of the goddess Durga. She is welcome with much fanfare amidst the beats of 'Dhak'.

Durga Puja can't be celebrate without sweet. Sooji halwa is a very popular dessert but I cook with a twist of chocolate sauce.Semolina Chocolate Pudding is a rich, simple and delicious pudding. It is light but extremely satisfying, sweet, creamy dessert. Actually during durga puja we all forget our diet and enjoy the festive time to its fullest.
