let’s talk about the Ingredients for Sooji Halwa

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.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
