Meetha, sweet, dessert.....my favourite part of the meal. Anyways, its the Indian way to start anything good with something sweet. So here's a classic Indian dessert prepared at most homes across India. Here I have given it a richer taste with use of milk and beautiful colour, subtle flavor and aroma using saffron. Its ingredients are simple and mostly available in the pantry, to prepare it quickly.
KESARI SUJI HALAWA
1 cup semolina (suji)
2 tbs clarified butter (ghee)
A generous pinch of saffron
1/2 cup milk
4 tbs sugar
Water as needed
Chopped nuts( almond and pistachios) to garnish
- In a thick bottomed or non stick pan, heat the ghee and roast the semolina and saffron on low heat for about 5 mins. Take care it does not change its colour.
- Then add the milk stirring all the while and also add a little water at a time. The semolina will soak up all the liquid but take care not to make it soggy.
- Finally add the sugar and stir till it melts and mixes well.
- Serve warm, garnished with chopped nuts.
