For this Suji ka Halwa recipe, you'll need:


  1. Roasting the Semolina:
    • In a heavy-bottomed pan, heat the ghee over medium-low heat.
    • Add the semolina (suji) to the pan and start roasting it. Keep stirring constantly to avoid burning. Roast until the suji turns golden brown and releases a nutty aroma. This step might take around 7-10 minutes.
  2. Preparing the Sugar Syrup:
    • While the suji is roasting, in a separate pot, bring 1 cup of water to a boil.
    • Add the sugar to the boiling water and stir until the sugar completely dissolves. This will create a sugar syrup.
  3. Combining the Ingredients:
    • Once the suji is roasted, carefully pour the hot sugar syrup into the roasted suji while continuously stirring. Be cautious, as the mixture might splutter.
    • Mix well to combine the sugar syrup and suji. The mixture will thicken quickly, so keep stirring to prevent lumps from forming.
  4. Adding Flavor and Nuts:
    • Sprinkle in the cardamom powder and saffron strands (if using). These will infuse the halwa with a delightful fragrance and color.
    • Add the chopped mixed nuts and raisins to the halwa. Reserve a few for garnishing.
  5. Final Touches and Serving:
    • Continue cooking the halwa for a few more minutes until it reaches the desired consistency. The halwa should be soft and easily come off the sides of the pan.
    • Turn off the heat and let the halwa rest for a couple of minutes.
    • Serve the Suji ka Halwa warm in bowls, garnished with the remaining chopped nuts.
  6. Conclusion:
    • Indulge in the sweet magic of Suji ka Halwa with this easy-to-follow recipe that's perfect for two people. The rich flavors of roasted semolina, ghee, and aromatic spices combine to create a dessert that's both comforting and satisfying. Whether enjoyed on a special occasion or simply as a sweet treat after a meal, Suji ka Halwa is a delightful journey into the world of traditional Indian sweets.
