Semolina Pudding or Sooji halwa, infused with saffron, with ghee roasted nuts!
Recipe type: Sweet
Serves: 5
  • Semolina 1 cup
  • Sugar 1 cup or more
  • Ghee ½ cup
  • Green Cardamon 4
  • Water 2 cups (more or less)
  • Few strands of saffron soaked in ¼ cup of milk
  • Dry fruits/nuts, like almonds, cashews, raisins, unsalted pistachios (Optional)
  1. In a saucepan, pour 2 cups of water and add 1 cup or more of sugar, 4-5 green cardamons and let the sugar dissolve completely. Put off the gas but make sure that the syrup is warm when you add it to the roasted semolina.
  2. In a thick bottomed pan, pour ghee and add nuts (if using) and roast till nice golden.You can chop in small pieces or just cut in halves, all the nuts, except the raisins (of course).
  3. Add semolina and roast it in ghee till it gives out a nice aroma. Take care as not to burn the semolina or the halwa will turn out to be bitter.
  4. Carefully add the warm syrup and keep stirring continuously to avoid any lumps. The mixture at this stage tends to splatter, so be careful. Add saffron infused milk and mix well.
  5. Let the halwa cook at low flame till the semolina appears to be smooth and the traces of ghee starts leaving the mixture.
  6. You can serve it hot, warm or cold, as a dessert or as a side dish along with Pooris, malpuas or boiled green grams, or black peas (Kohar or Kala Vatana)
