Sooji ka Halwa

March 22, 2013

Suji ka Halwa is a sweet dish made out of semolina and one of the easiest sweet dishes to make. It is something most people like and anybody can make. This recipe is a simple shortcut.

For this you would need-

Semolina/Sooji -1 cup

Bay leaves- 2

Sugar – 6-8 spoons (or as per taste)

Cardamom- 2-3

Raisins- 15 (optional)

Cashew- 10 (optional)

Butter/Ghee-2-3 tbsp (this can be substituted with oil if Ghee cannot be used for health reasons. But ghee instills a flavour and aroma which would be absent if you use oil)

Sooji ka Halwa

Method of Preparation

In a pan heat ghee/butter, add bay leaves followed by sooji. Roast it continuously till brown. This takes nearly 10 minutes but you have to be careful since there are chances of burning sooji.

Add cashew and raisins followed by water. Add sugar and keep stirring.  Stir till water dries a little and the mix is thick and comes off pan.

Serve hot!
