Ashtami/Navmi Prasad - Sooji ka Halwa

Sooji ka Halwa

Servings: 4
Prep Time: 05 Mins
Cook Time: 30 Mins


Sooji  (semolina) 1 cup
Sugar 1 cup
Water 4 cups
Ghee 1/2 cup
Green Cardamom (powdered) 1/4 tsp
For garnish –
Blanched and shredded Almonds 1 Tbsp


Heat a deep pan over medium heat and when it is hot, add the ghee. When the ghee melts, add the sooji and stir to mix well.

Roast the sooji & stirring frequently until it begins to turn a light golden color and gets a glossy look and does not stick together much (which means it is fried enough).

Add the sugar and the cardamom and bring to a boil, then simmer till the liquid is absorbed. At this stage, you can stir off and on, not continuous.

Serve hot, garnished with the almonds.
