Suji halwa

It is the most simple and quick Indian dessert. One can eat it hot and cold. And its simplicity does not do any compromise with taste. There is this subtle balance of aroma and sweetness. A perfect for some quick sweet treat.

(Serves 2)

1/2cup semolina
1cup milk
~1/2cup sugar (a bit less)
3tbsp ghee
3 pods cardamom
1 bay leaf
1/4cup nuts and raisins


1.       Heat gree in a wok. Add bay leaf and cardamom pods.
2.       Add semolina and sugar. Stir well over medium heat until the semolina gets golden and sugar starts to melt. (Check the sweetness and add a bit more if not according to taste.)
3.       Add nuts and raisins.
4.       Lower the heat. Pour the milk and stir well continuously. The milk will get absorbed in the semolina while the later is cooked. It will form little lumps but not a mass. Add a bit more of milk if too dry.
5.       While still moist, remove from heat.
6.       Garnish with nuts and raisins.
