MAKE SHEERA

  • Boil water, sugar, food color and raisins in a vessel. When sugar dissolves completely. remove from heat and set aside.

FRY SEMOLINA

  • In another pot, heat clarified butter and fry cardomom powder, cloves and semolina. Fry until semolina color changes and fragrant. Semolina burns quickly so stir constantly.
  • Now, add sheera water in semolina pot. Cook for 10 minutes on very low heat so semolina puffs completely. Keep stirring and cook until oil separates from sides. (Sooji halwa should be runny and not lumpy. It will absorb more water upon cooling and thicken.)
  • Garnish with pistachio and almonds.
