Sooji Halwa

"Sooji ka Halwa" (Satyanarayan Sheero) is one of my mumma's very special dish! On the other side, I'm not-into-sweets person, so I never cared to learn it from her... :( And look at the destiny! My hubby just loves sweets & desserts!!! 

During my stay at in-laws, my mother-in-law used to make it often... She never bothered me about it as everyone knew tat I stay away from sweets! But I bugged her at times n she kept explaining it step-by-step to me :) Finally... I follow each of her tips while making this super-duper sweet n I make sure to bring my mumma's taste into it :P 

Thanks to mummy n mumma both!!! 

Makes: 2 servings 


1 cup sooji 
2 tbsp ghee 
1/4 cup cashews 
1 cup lukewarm milk 
1/2 cup sugar 
1/4 tsp cardamom powder


- Heat ghee in deep kadai. Once it melts completely, saute cashews (cut into halves) till its golden in color. Take them out and keep aside. 
- Add sooji in kadai and roast it till light brown color. It will release the finest aroma at the same time. 
- Add cashews, cardamom powder and sugar into it and mix well. 
- Pour milk gradually, stirring it continuously to avoid lumps. 
- Cook the mixture for few mins. Once its paste-like consistency, it will leave the sides of the pan. 
- Turn off gas and "Sooji Halwa" is ready! 
- Garnish with sliced almonds and serve hot... :)
