Halva Boiled Sooji

Halva is a class of dessert eaten over a wide region of south east asia as well as west asia, the balkans and the Mediterranean. It has various names such as halvah, halwa, halava, etc. Halwa can be made from a number of ingredients. The most common in India are sooji halwa (semolina based), aata halwa (wheat flour), gaajar halwa (carrot based), moong halwa (lentil based), etc.

Sooji halwa is prepared from semolina wheat and ghee. It is also eaten in neighbouring countries such as Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh as well as many west asian countries. Sooji halwa is sweet in taste and has a gelatinous texture. It is a mouth watering dessert and can be eaten as evening or tea time snack.

Among other halwa's sooji halwa is probably the easiest to make. All you need is 250 gm of sooji or semolina, 500 ml water, 3 tbsp of ghee, sugar, 1 tsp cardamom powder and chopped almonds and raisins.

Heat the ghee in a pan and add the semolina to it. Keep cooking till the semolina grains are golden in color and the ghee begins to separate. Now add water to it and stir regularly. Add sugar and keep cooking till most of the water is gone and a thick gelatinous material is left behind. Add the nuts and raisins and the cardamom powder and mix them well. Serve the halwa hot.
