Suji Halwa: extremely easy and delicious recipe to learn How to make Suji/Sooji ka halwa. It’s traditional Indian dessert that’s ready in minutes and made using semolina, ghee and nuts.  Suji Halwa | How to make Suji ka Halwa

Suji Halwa – Indian Semolina Dessert Pudding was one dessert recipe that I love to eat but always ran away from making it.
 
Of ALL the Indian dessert recipes, this is the Most common and the easiest recipe to make but with a catch 😉 – Measurement!
If you donot measure or eyeball the ingredients, it takes a minute to ruin the entire recipe.
 
Suji ka Halwa or Sooji ka Halwa (Semolina Pudding), call it by any name, it’s one of the same things. 
 
It’s also the most used recipe in Indian Festivals, especially when offering it in the temple or celebrating any auspicious event at home.
 
Most of the people love it because it’s extremely easy, simple, taste awesome looks rich n smells even divine.
 

How to Make Suji ka Halwa / Sooji ka Halwa

It’s made using 3 very basic  Ingredients:
  • Suji – Semolina
  • Sugar
  • Ghee – Clarified Unsalted Butter
 
And to make the perfect suji ka halwa, these Ingredients needs to be properly measured n added carefully.
If you don’t measure the exact ingredients you’ll end up with different versions of halwa ( Too sweet or less, too watery or dry, too oily or less, no taste Coz something is still missing OR the worst burning it).
 
After evading it for many years (maybe due to laziness n usage of clarified butter), One day I had just had enough!!!! 
So finally called up Mom at 5 AM her time (India) 😉 and requested her to teach me the exact proportions (also avoiding using too much butter) as I wanted to make it as an offering at temple.  
 
Mom’s being mom, not only taught me the exact measurement but also stayed up with me the whole time over the phone at 5 am her time till the Suji Halwa (pudding) was made 🙂
 
And for the FIRST TIME, it came out just PERFECT !!! (It was rich and tasted simply delicious, a great blend of semolina, sugar n butter)
I guess when the recipe is cooked correct, smell, texture n look itself speaks for it
