  • Boil water and sugar together in a saucepan and keep it (Chashni) aside
  • Heat ghee in a Kadai over medium flame, add sooji and roast it until golden brown. This will take about 8-10 minutes
  • Reduce flame to low and add boiled sugar water (Chashni) slowly. Stir constantly to avoid any lump formation.
  • When you add all the water, turn the flame to medium and cook until all water gets absorbed. Add cardamom powder and all the dry fruits when the halwa has semi-solid consistency. Save some dry fruits for garnishing.
  • Serve hot “Sooji ka halwa” with Puri, Aloo or kale channe.

Tips & Notes

  • Water can be replaced with Milk to make the halwa tastier and softer. In this case, you need add sugar after roasting the Sooji and after 2-3 minutes add milk.
