Makhandi halwa (Semolina Pudding)

Semolina Pudding or Makhandi halwa is a sweet treat perfect for satisfying your cravings or impressing your guests with its rich flavors and warm aroma.


  • 1/2 cup Semolina (Sooji)

  • 1/2 cup Milk

  • 4 tablespoons Ghee

  • 2 green cardamoms pounded

  • Dry fruits like almonds, cashews, or pistachios for garnish


  1. Preparation: Start by soaking the semolina (sooji) in milk for about half an hour. This step helps to soften the semolina and enhances its texture in the final dish.

  2. Cooking: In a pan, heat the ghee and add brown sugar. Let it caramelize to achieve a beautiful golden hue and a rich flavor. Then, add the soaked semolina-milk mixture to the pan.

  3. Simmering: Stir the mixture continuously and add more milk to reach the desired consistency. Toss in the pounded green cardamoms to infuse their aromatic essence into the halwa.

  4. Thickening: Keep cooking the halwa until it reaches a thick, pudding-like consistency and starts to leave the sides of the pan. This step ensures that your halwa is creamy and perfectly cooked.

  5. Garnish & Serve: Once your Sooji Halwa is ready, garnish it with a generous sprinkle of dry fruits like almonds, cashews, or pistachios. These nuts add a delightful crunch and enhance the visual appeal of your dessert.

  6. Enjoy: Serve your warm and fragrant Sooji Halwa as a delightful ending to any meal or as a sweet indulgence. Combining semolina, ghee, milk, and aromatic spices creates terrific flavors that will leave you craving more.

So there you have it - a simple yet indulgent recipe for Sooji Halwa that's bound to impress your taste buds and bring warmth to your heart.

Happy cooking and even happier eating! 🍽️
