This being my first blog, thought will start with something sweet. My Husband has a sweet tooth and he wants something sweet all the time. Recently got to spend some quality time with my brother-in-law and found out that he is just like my hubby. Even after having Kheer for dinner he wakes up and says “Bhabhi please halwa bana do”. So here I am cooking Sooji Ka Halwa… Hope you try the same and like it..:)
Preparation Time:- 2-3 mins | Cooking Time:- 15-20 mins | Serves:- 4-6 people
- 1 Cup Sooji
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 3 Cup Water
- 3-4 tablespoons of Ghee
- Almonds and Raisins for Garnishing (Almonds soaked over night, peeled and chopped can be used)
NOTE: Same size cup is to be used for all the above mentioned.
In a pan add the sugar and water and allow it to boil (for Chashni/ sugar syrup).
In a kadhai add the sooji and ghee and start frying by stirring continuously so that the sooji does not burn. (You can add more ghee if the paste is getting difficult to stir).
Keep stirring till the paste becomes brown in color. Once you get an appropriate halwa color add the sugar syrup to the paste, stir continuously to avoid lumps formation. (be careful when adding the syrup as it splitters a lot).
Keep stirring till the sooji soaks the water and bloats and the halwa becomes thick.
Garnish with Almonds and raisins.
