How to make Suji Halwa | Sooji Ka Halwa ~ Step by Step

>>  Tuesday, June 19, 2012

For the last day of the third week, I have a delicious Suji Halwa from the North. Now this is very much like the Rava halwa we make, yet with a twist that surely made all the difference. I will let you in a secret, this was one time when I didn't feel bad that there are no takers for sweets. I had little servings for over two days, and my gosh did I enjoy it or what!

I had selected this thali with a special note to make this halwa, and when I had tasted it right off the pan, it tasted heavenly! I persuaded hubby dear to taste this, he did and said it lived up to all the claims I was having. Yet as he was preoccupied with work, I was left alone to enjoy the entire treat.

Suji Halwa
With today's post we complete the third week of Blogging Marathon. I know the excitemet seem short lived. As with anything else, this needs to be adjusted, and accepted. There is not that mad rush all the time to think of something in seven different ways, not always being preoccupied with different dishes taking form all the time. When you realize that you can actually discuss something else with your mom, mil other than BM themes. Convincing the folks that for the next seven days you will be forced to eat 7 different ways to make so and so.

At the same time, I miss the thrill of discussing the different ways to make something, having an evil grin on seeing the look at the unsuspecting folks, the mad rush that pumps up the adrenalin. Well life is always like this!

Coming back to the recipe, try this and enjoy this sinful treat as soon as you can..:)

Suji Halwa

Ingredients Needed

Suji/ Semolina - 1 cup
Ghee - 1/2 cup
Besan / Gram flour - 4 tsp
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Brown Sugar - 1/4 cup
Cashews new - handful
Cardamom powder a pinch
Water - 2 cups

How to make the Suji Halwa

Melt ghee in a non stick pan, then add the suji and roast well. This takes about 10 - 15 mins depending on the flame. If you are stirring constantly you can get this done soon.

Then add the besan and saute well. The raw smell should leave and should start letting out a wonderful aroma.

At this point add the sugars, combine well. When it's all mixed well, add 2 cups of lukewarm water and simmer with a lid covered.

Let it continue cooking till the halwa is dry and well cooked. Finally add the roasted nuts and serve.

That touch of besan is interesting.

You have really described my feelings for BM. I do miss the 7 day adrenaline rush, but its better now that its laid back as you can accommodate more things into your life now. I guess we will all learn to love this BM, but only after we get over the initial 'Oh no! Is it already over?!' phase.

BTW sooji halwa really looks very very yumm!

Spectacular Sooji Halwa! Addition of Gram flour is new to me.

Pavani June 21, 2012 at 3:37 AM  

Adding besan is interesting. Will try your version next time.
