Suzi ka Halwa (Semolina sweet)

Things required:
Suzi bareek (Semolina fine): 1 cup
Pure ghee (melted white plain butter): 1 cup
sugar: 1 cup
warm water : 2 cups
cardamom: 2 pieces (peeled and powdered)
dry coconut grated (for garnishing)
cahewnut: 5-6, broken half
almonds: 4 pieces (cut into small pieces)
Raisins: 10-15
Melt ghee in a kadhai, add suzi (semolina) and then roast suzi in ghee on slow flame till it turns brown. Roasting should be done on slow flame with continous stirring. Increase the flame high, add water and then sugar and stirr continously so that no lumps are formed. Reduce the flame and cook covered for 2-3 minutes. Add cardamom powder, raisins mix well. Transfer in serving dish and garnish with chopped cashew nuts and sliced almonds and serve.


  1. use whole milk instead of water ... it tastes 'yummier' :)

    One can make suzi halwa with different fruits - i make one with bananas - an all time favourite - add chopped bananas just before you switch off the gas ... serve after 5-10 mins inorder to get the flavour of bananas. Apple / Chikoo can be used similarly.

    For mango based suzi halwa - add fresh mango juice immediately after you have added milk / water.

  2. Thanks Paddy...for the alterations. Will try the banana one shortly..
