Sooji Halwa

This is the yummiest of all Indian desserts and its so simple to make. When refrigerated properly, it stays fresh for atleast 3-4 days.

Enjoi..:)


Sooji Halwa

Ingredients:

2 cups Sooji (Cream of wheat)
2 cups Sugar
1/2 cup Nuts, finely chopped (I used cashews, raisins and almonds)
8 cups of water
1 tsp Ghee

Preparation:

Step 1: Heat a tsp of ghee and roast the nuts, until golden brown. Set aside.

Step 2: In a sauce pan, bring water to boil and add sugar. Stir well. On a medium-low flame, slowly add sooji, while stirring it constantly so that it doesn't form lumps.

Step 3: Cook for 4-5 minutes and now add half of the roasted nuts. Mix well.

Step 4: Take a flat bottom bowl and evenly spread rest of the nuts at its bottom. Spread the halwa on them and press. Turn it upside down on the serving plate. It looks so beautiful topped with raisins and is in the shape of a cake..:)

This is how I served for Diwali potluck party at my work place.

  25. hi siri, we make halva in greece too. we use semolina (is that what the sooji is?) and oil (not butter).
    it's a popular dessert during fasting times when people try to avoid dairy products for religious reasons
