| Tips About Recipe
1 cup fine semolina (bareek suji)
sugar slightly less than 1 cup (suji say thori kam cheeni)
1 cup unsalted butter(baghair namak k makhan)
1/2 cup raisins(kishmish)
1/2 cup crushed coconut(kash kia hua khopra)
1/2 cup sliced almonds(badam)
12-13 green cardamoms(hari ellaichi)
2 cups water
How to make Sooji Halwa-Traditional
Partially melt butter in a wok, and add semolina in it.
Add green cardamoms after adding semolina, if added in butter before semolina they may burn.
When semolina roasts nicely to a golden color and gives aroma keep a cup of water ready to add in it as it may burn quickly.
Add water and then sugar and raisins,almonds and coconut.
Sugar will melt and dissolve,add 1 more cup of water so that semolina will soften.
It is prepared very quickly, cook until butter is separated.
Some people add lemon zest some add 1 tsp of orange/lemon marmalade in it,some like to make it with green cardamoms, butterand semolina only... you can make it the way you like.
Its a very soft, moist and tasty semolina halwa.
Take sugar a little less than semolina, like if taking semolina 250 grams than take sugar 230 grams.
Butter should be equal in amount as semolina.
