of halwa for ashtami prasad
sooji halwa recipe is a
recipe using semolina: semolina i.e. sooji has been used. I have used thick or the regular semolina instead of the fine one. make sure to roast semolina properly.
other ingredients: ghee i.e. clarified butter has been used and I do not cut down its quantity because enough ghee is very important for the perfect texture of sooji halwa. as such nuts may be not added for Prasad, I have added some blanched and halved almonds n cashews which I had roasted slightly. you may also add some desiccated coconut or cardamom powder or totally skip the nuts.
1. Roast Nuts : Heat 1 tsp ghee. add nuts and cook on low flame till they turn golden.
2. Cook Semolina in Ghee : Heat ½ cup ghee. add ½ cup semolina. cook on low flame till it turns brown and crisp as the colour and texture of sand.
3. Add Water and Sugar and Nuts : Add 2 cups water. stir continuously and make sure there are no lumps. add 1 cup sugar. keep stirring and cook. add roasted nuts. cook till oil oozes and halwa leaves sides.
4. bon appétit : Serve sooji halwa with Kala chana and poori as prasad
