A Pakistani Halwa Puri breakfast consists of puris, chole masala, suji halwa and aloo ki bhujia. It’s a delicious breakfast platter that’s well-loved throughout the region, but especially popular in Lahore.
What is Halwa Puri?
Halwa Puri is a Pakistani breakfast platter that originates from the Indian subcontinent. It is considered a weekend brunch in Pakistan and India.
As a foodie, I decided it’s time we talk about the MOST popular breakfast in Pakistan: halwa puri. Or do you write halwa poori? Who cares as long as we have some flaky and soft pooris to dip into halwa right?
So, why exactly am I writing this post?
- I wanted to have a post on the internet which covered every halwa puri recipe you need to make a complete halwa puri breakfast.
- I believe it's time we honour the tradition of this halwa puri Pakistani breakfast and appreciate it for existing in our lives. Lol.
I know, I know, halwa puri isn’t exactly healthy. But what I also know is the excitement that comes with waking up on a lazy weekend morning and having halwa puri.
It’s the small things in life that brings the most happiness. And I think halwa puri is also a taste of happiness, isn't it?

Suji ka Halwa
This halwa is made from suji (semolina) and is always, always served with poori. This recipe tastes exactly like the halwa we get with poori from the restaurants in Pakistan.

Punjabi Chole Masala
Chole masala or chana masala is always served with halwa poori too and its so so delicious. I absolutely love the combination of sweet and savoury, and I’m sure you will too. This recipe is also super easy. Get the Punjabi Chole Masala recipe here for step by step photos.
