Recipe by Bint e Naeem

Just made the halwa like half an hr ago. Loved how it tasted. In addition to raisons u can also add cocounut. Or for Halwa puri style halwa u can add a 1/2 teaspoon yellow color & omit the raisons.

  1. In a pan add water and sugar. Boil it for ten to 15 mins high or till the water dries up into half.
  2. Turn off the heat & add the raisons (kish mish) in it. This would be yr sheera.
  3. In a separate pan warm up the ghee on medium high and add cardamom seeds and semolina (sooji) in it. Keep on stirring it till the semolina turns a bit darker or golder brown. Note u can not leave the semolina unattended now since it can stick in the pan & burn up easily.
  4. Stir fry it for 10 minutes.
  5. Now add the sugar water & cook it for 5 mins on high.
  6. Once the water dries up & the semolina puffs a little bit cover the pan & let it simmer for another 5 minutes.
  7. Take out in a serving dish. Sprinkle some chopped dry fruits.
  8. This sweet dish is best served hot.
