Easy to make sheera/ kesari bhath/ suji ka halwa/ semolina pudding

Hi friends,

I am writing after many days. Finding very little time to write as the work keeps me really busy.
So here I am posting about the easy to make & good to eat sheera.

Its a very good breakfast and since it takes just 10-15 mins to make, its a good choice for when in hurry :)

Ok so let's get started!

Suji/ rawaa/ semolina
1-2 cardamoms
Turmeric/ Saffron (To give color)

Time: 10-15 mins

Now as you all would have noticed, I have not specified the quantity, well for this delicacy, there is a ratio, remembering which goes a long way :)

its: 1 cup suji-1 cup sugar-3 cups milk-1 cup water - 2tbsp ghee


Take a deep bottomed pan ( preferably non stick) and add the suji and powdered cardamom, you can add cardamom at the end to. Add the pinch of turmeric now if you are using it, if using saffron soak it in milk n add when you add milk.
Roast the suji for about 3-4 mins till you just start getting the aroma of roasted suji. Add the ghee now and mix well with the suji.

Now some recipes say you should boil the milk/water and then add sugar to it, but honestly who has all this time, so here's my effective shortcut

Once the suji is roasted, add in the milk and water and keep stirring the mixture constantly. If any big lumps are there, try to break them with the spatula but keep stirring, the lumps dissolve sooner or later. Keep stirring for 2-3 mins like that and then add the cup of sugar and keep mixing and stirring constantly. No stopping the stirring folks, that's the key :)

Now the mixture will come to a boil so be careful while stirring, in a minute or two you will see that the whole mixture starts moving in the pan more or less like one big mass. Now that's the point when you can turn off the flame n tadaa!! :D

Sprinkle with some powdered cardamom and coconut and enjoy :)
P.S if you wanna add dry fruits like resins, cashew nut, almonds etc, put them in while you add ghee, no need to fry, roasting them in ghee along with suji gives them a nice delicate flavour and does not make them heavy.

So here it was, the easy and quick to make sheera/ suji ka halwa/ kesari bhath/ semolina pudding.

If you have any comments pls feel free to post them. Good or bad I would love to hear them all :)
So have fun and happy cooking everyone :)
