Sooji Halwa / Rava Kesari / Semolina Pudding

Star Rating WIDGET PACK

The day before yesterday I was craving for some dessert at afternoon. As I didn't have any in my kitchen, had to make it by own. The quickest recipe I found is this one 'Sooji Halwa'. It really takes 20-25 minutes to prepare and tastes awesome. You can make 'halwa' in many colors like white, golden, yellow or orange. But I like my halwa little yellow in color. This was the first time I made halwa at home, really enjoyed while making and obviously eating it!! I love 'rose' flavor in my halwa, you can add cardamom, cinnamon or nutmeg flavors also. Try this in your kitchen and let me know how it turns out.
