Suji Ka Halwa (Indian Semolina Pudding) is a sweet dessert often made for auspicious occasions in India and in Pakistan it is served with a famous weekend brunch food called halwa puri. It is also called rava kesari or rava sheera in some areas of India. Topped with dry fruit, Suji Ka Halwa is an easy, comforting and delicious dessert from the South Asian region.
I’m here with a delicious Indian dessert that’s super indulgent and super easy to make. But let’s first start with a brief explanation of what exactly semolina (rava) is.
What Exactly is Semolina?
Even I didn’t know this until recently. Lol. So basically, semolina is derived from the middlings of wheat durum and is also used to make pasta and couscous. In countries like India and Pakistan, it is primarily used to make this suji ka halwa (rava sheera). And boy, is it yummy or what?! Not to mention it’s super simple to make which is just the way I like it here.
