rava sheera recipe | suji ka halwa | sooji halwa | with 13 amazing images

A wonderful quick Indian dessert, rava sheera can be prepared in minutes. It does not require much advance preparation, and can be whipped up even at short notice. suji ka halwa is traditional, yet modern in its simplicity, making it a sheer delight.

suji ka halwa is made by roasting rava in ghee, then adding milk, water, sugar and nuts which are then cooked on a slow flame for 10 minutes.

I would like to share some important tips to make the perfect sooji halwa. 1. Using warm milk is important as it will help the semolina cook faster. 2. Add 2½ cups of hot water. These liquids will help in cooking the semolina properly. 3. Cover and cook suji ka halwa on a slow flame about 10 minutes, while stirring occasionally. It might take a little more or less time as it depends highly on the quality of the sooji and also the flame on which it is cooked.

rava sheera recipe makes a traditional and delightful combination with puris and chana.

Check our collection of sheera recipes, that apart from semolina are made using varieties of nuts, flours or a combination of flour and fruits and even dals like mango sheera and badam ka sheera.

I used corn rava to make it gluten free , the ghee could have been easily 1 tbsp lesser. I used erythrit /Stevia instead of sugar and used half the recommended amount. It was more than sweet enough. The ghee used was ouzing from the sides. But thank you.
