So, I decided to start the Recipe section with something sweet.. It’s the easiest and one of the quickest Pakistani dessert to make… I have whatsapp-ed, emailed, texted (what not!), this recipe to friends and family.. so hoping I don’t have to do that again 🙂
Sooji and Besan ka Halva
Serves about 5-6 people (depends on who’s eating 😉 )
- 1/2 Cup Sooji (Semolina)
- 1/2 Cup Besan (Gram Flour)
- 1/2 Cup Oil
- 3 Cardamoms
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 Cup Milk
- Almonds and Pistachios
1.In a wok, heat up the cardamoms in the oil for a few minutes. Then add the Sooji and Besan together.
2.Stir them periodically and let it fry on a low – medium heat till it changes its color to a little darker shade of brown.
3.Then add sugar and milk together and constantly stir till it gets to the right consistency.
4.Pour it out in the dish you want to serve it in (while its hot) and garnish with chopped pistachios and almonds.
Easy isn’t it? Give it a try and let me know how it turned out.
Bubye till then…
