Sooji Halwa Recipe:
1/4 cup butter or ghee
1/2 cup sooji/semolina
1 1/2 cup hot water
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
1/2 cup of raisins
Crushed nuts of choice (almonds and pistachios taste great)
Put a pan on flame and add ghee to it. Once the ghee melts, add sooji to it and start stirring. You have to continuously stir until the sooji turns brown in colour and you can smell the roasted sooji. (It should not be burnt).
For the next step, add hot water to this pan and continue stirring so that everything mixes nicely and you get a thick consistency. Also, make sure that there are no lumps and the consistency is same throughout.
To this mixture, add the cardamom powder and the raisins. Finally, add the sugar and mix again making sure that the sugar granules are properly dissolved. After a point, you will notice the halwa is separating from the pan, it indicates that your halwa is ready to be served.
At this stage, remove the pan from the heat, pour it into serving bowls and garnish with the nuts of your choice. Enjoy your warm delicious halwa that feels like a hug from the inside.
