Learn how to make easy Suji Ka Halwa (Indian Semolina Pudding) which is an easy semolina with sugar syrup dessert topped with nuts. Served on auspicious or religious occasions in India and also served with poori.
1/2 cup assorted dry fruit (I used walnuts, cashew nuts and raisins)
For the Sugar Syrup
In a medium sized pot add all ingredients and cook just until the sugar has completely dissolved. Take off from heat and set aside.
For the Suji Ka Halwa Base
In a large heavy based pot, heat the ghee (or butter) and add the crushed cardamom pods.
Add the semolina (suji or rava) and cook for 2-3 minutes until it releases a nutty aroma.
Pour in the sugar syrup and cook the suji ka halwa for 2-3 minutes. The halwa will still be very liquidy and bubbly. Do not cook any longer than 2-3 minutes and take off heat immediately. Cover with lid and let rest for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes the semolina will have absorbed extra liquid and be in perfect consistency. Top with nuts / dry fruit and serve on its own or with poori.
