Happy Deepavali –Semolina or sujir halwa 

It is the most delicious and popular dessert all over India —
The wafting scent of roasting semolina or suji in ghee is heavenly — one can die for —

Just gather few ingredients and you are prepared to make a delicious dessert —

It is also served as a bhog to God after prayer —

Main Ingredients:

  • 1 cup semolina
  • 4 tbsp of ghee
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of cashew nuts and raisins mixed together
  • 6 small green cardamom powder


In a thick bottomed non-stick pan  roast the semolina in medium flame for 3 to 4 minutes , the initial roasting eliminates the raw smell of the semolina and it turns golden brown in colour.

It will take more or less 15 minutes and then add in the sugar and the dry fruits –switch off the flame when the semolina glistening with the ghee.
