DIRECTIONS

  • Take a deep pan or kadai; heat ghee. When hot add suji; stir it and lower the flame medium to low.
  • In a separate pan take water, sugar, food colouring and raisins together. Bring to a boil on medium flame and let it boil for a minute.
  • After a couple of minutes the suji will change colour. Now don't leave it unattended--constantly stir it to avoid burning until a nice brown colour is reached, something similar to the colour of peanut butter.
  • Reduce flame to slowest wear your thick oven gloves and very carefully add the boiling water to the suji.
  • The water will splutter, so be careful!
  • Now add the coconut slices and simmer until the water is well mixed and halwa has reached a good thick consistency (please do not boil or overcook else it will harden).
  • Remove from flame and cover with a lid.
  • This halwa is eaten warm. Can be refrigerated up to a week and heated in microwave.
  • Enjoy!
