When looking at the list of recipes that I already wrote down for you, I noticed that there are not a lot of recipes for deserts yet. This is how I decided to write the recipe for Suji ka Halwa today, a sweet dish made of semolina. You may think of semolina pudding now, the way that it is made in the west. I have heard and seen of this, too, but this way of preparing sweet semolina is different. It is a popular dish that is often made in celebration times but also as a treat in a normal day. Try, it tastes really great!
Suji ka Halwa – Sweet Semolina Dish – Indian Desert
Prepare semolina the Indian way! A sweet dish with cashews and raisins that is easy to make and always loved by guests, friends and family.
How long does it take to make Suji ka Halwa?
2 tbsp Ghee
50g Cashew Nuts
How to make Suji ka Halwa
You start by preparing the cashew nuts. Break them into three or four pieces each. Of course, if you prefer having full nuts in your Halwa, you can also put the complete nuts.
Put ghee in a wok on the stove and let the ghee get warm but not too hot. Add your semolina and roast it until it changes its colour to a dark golden. You will already smell a nice aroma that makes your mouth water already now.
At this point you add the sugar, mix it once with the semolina and add the water. It is up to you how sweet you like your Halwa. You can decrease or increase the amount of sugar as you wish. Now stir the complete mixture and add your cashew nuts and raisins. Here, too, you can add more or less or get creative and use other nuts as well.
Your Halwa is nearly done now. You only need to keep on stirring for approximately five minutes. In that time, the semolina will absorb the water and the mixture will turn into a nice and delicious paste.
Eat it hot, that is how it is most delicious!
