Sooji (Semolina) Halwa

Sooji/rava Halwa is an Indian pudding made of semolina.At many places it is offered to God ( as prasad ).The classic proportions of its ingredients( ghee,sooji,sugar,water ) are 1:2:3:4 but sugar proportion can be changed as per liking.So here is my sweet recipe of sooji halwa.

Sooji/semolina 1 cup
Sugar 1 cup
Ghee/clarified butter 1/2 cup
Water 2 cup
Green cardamom pw 1/2 tsp
Coconut grated 1/4 cup

1. Heat ghee in a heavy bottom pan.Add sooji and fry it till golden brown in colour on medium heat.Keep stirring to avoid burning.
2. Now add green cardamom powder,sugar,water and half of the dry fruits (coconut,raisins,almond),Stir continuously to avoid lumps.
3. Cook till the water evaporates.
4. Garnish with rest of the dry fruits and serve hot.

Note: You can substitute water with milk to make it more healthy.
