This is one dessert which is made all over India. The only difference is the name. Some call it Sooji halwa, some call it Sheera and some other call it Kesari...

- 1Heat the milk and add the saffron to it and let soak.
- 2In a thick bottomed pan heat the ghee and add the semolina and keep frying till it turns pink.(In the northern parts of India the semolina is fried till it is well browned which gives the halwa a caramalised flavour-and is tasty too).
- 3Now add the sugar and let it melt, if you want the halwa to be brown then let the sugar brown a little.
- 4Now add the water or the milk. Add water if you are making the brown version and milk if you are making the whilte/cream halwa.
- 5Finally add the nuts and cardamom powder.
- 6Pour the mixture on a baking tray and let it solidify (about 15 minutes).
- 7Cut into desired shapes and serve hot or at room temperature.
