Makai Jajaria, a popular halwa or we can say a Pudding dessert in the regions of Udaipur, Rajastan. A very quick and easy to make dessert using Sweet corn. We can make this awesome dish in microwave or pressure cooker too. I have done in the conventional way. The apartment I live has a diversity of Indians and one of the family is a marwari from rajasthan. They invited me for their little daughter's birthday and after a wonderful dinner, they served a delightful dessert that was a real treat for our taste buds. When I asked her, she told the dessert is called " Makai Jajaria " in their home town and is made with yellow or white corn which grows abundant in that region. She explained me the procedure to do this awesome dish and I tried it and it turned so good. My family and friends enjoyed this yummy sweet.
