Sooji Halwa

As kids, we loved this sweet! Mom used to make quite often, for our evening tiffin. Now, I make it for my toddler son.

Sooji (Crema of wheat) - 1 cup, fine
Ghee - 4 tbsp
Cashews, Raisins - 2 tbsp
Milk - 3 cups
Sugar - 2 cups
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp

  1. Add 1 tbsp ghee in a wide skillet, roast cashews and raisins for a couple of minutes, remove and set aside.

  2. Add 1 tbsp ghee to the skillet, roast sooji until it turns into pale brown. Remove and set aside.
  • Boil 3 cups milk in a saucepan, add cashews and raisins. Lower heat and slowly add roasted sooji while stirring.
  • Add sugar, cardamom powder and 2 tbsp ghee. Mix well.
  • Turn the heat off when sooji soaks up all the liquid.
  • Adjust sugar and ghee as per your preference.
  • Sooji Halwa gets done in no time! Now, wasn't that easy?
