Serves: 2 | Time: 25 mins | Difficulty: Medium
- 1/2 cup Semolina (Sooji)
- 1/3 cup Ghee
- 1¼ cup Water
- 1/2 cup Sugar
- 5 Almonds, sliced
- 5 Cashew nuts, chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon Cardamom Powder
- ¼ cup Desiccated Coconut
Pour 1¼ cup water in a small saucepan and bring it to boil over medium flame, for 3-4 minutes.
Take Semolina & Desiccated coconut in a heavy-based pan, add ghee and heat it over medium flame. Roast it until it turns golden-brown. It will take anywhere between 8 to 10 minutes.
Reduce flame to low; slowly add boiled water and mix by stirring constantly. Add water slowly and stir intermediately to avoid any lump formation.
Increase the flame to medium and cook until all the water gets absorbed. Add sugar and cardamom powder.
Stir it until sugar dissolves completely and it has a semi-solid consistency.
Garnish it with Almonds, Cashew nuts & Desiccated Coconut.
