Sooji Halwa

I needed to save this modified recipe somewhere.

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 4-5 cardamom pods or 1 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 3/4 cup semolina
  1. Slowly bring the sugar, water, milk and cardamom pods/powder to the boil over low heat.
  2. Cook the semolina on high heat in a frying pan stirring continuously until the it turns golden brown.
  3. Add the sugar mixture to the semolina and stir continuously, achieving the dough-like consistency of halva. Don’t forget to strain out the cardamom pods.
  4. Refrigerate.

“Real” halva is made with ghee and nuts.
