Shahi Halwa !! (Quick Semolina Pudding from Delhi)

In an effort to come out of yesterday’s extremely spicy chana, today I am here with an easy-to-make desi sweet.Personally I am not much into sweets.Perhaps the only sweet I love to have is Prathaman Payasam which we prepare for Onam or Vishu.But my little angel is much a ‘dessert’ person.Before each meal,she curiously check with me what’s for dessert.At times she asks me how can I go without chocolates and Ice-creams.Obviously,these are the two things she can’t live without.

So for the day, we have pretty desi shahi halwa, a sweet from Delhi,which, you can cherish with  a homely feel.Having sublime saffron-cardamom flavours,it’s a divine sweet to have and that too with minimum job ! Here is the recipe for Shahi Halwa,my 3rd entry for the prestigious BM#6.

Ingredients
1 cup semolina/suji
4 tbsp ghee
 For sugar syrup
4 cups of water
1/2 cup sugar
4 green cardamoms,crushed
few strands of saffron (kesar)
To Garnish
few almonds,blanched
Method
Prepare the sugar syrup by boiling water,sugar,cardamoms and saffron.Boil it for 5 more minutes

Heat ghee in a deep bottomed skillet and roast the semolina in law heat till golden brown.You have to sauté properly without burning.After being golden brown slowly pour in sugar syrup and sauté with the spoon carefully with the other hand.

Mix well and cook till ghee floats over and semolina leaves from the side.Shift it into a pan you love to serve.Garnish with almonds.

    Delicious!

    btw, you have a typo in your list of ingredients for sugar syrup. You listed water twice, instead of sugar & water.
