Recipe Of The Week – Sooji & Besan Halwa

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 Halwa

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.

3.Then add sugar and milk together and constantly stir till it gets to the right consistency.
