Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaathu everyone!
My little sister loves suji ka halwa. On her birthday she asked for suji halwa instead to a birthday cake for a dessert. That is how much she loves it. The best thing about this is that it literally takes no time to make at all. It is a classic Pakistani dessert and it tastes delicious. Trust me if you haven’t tried it you need to.
Here’s an important tip to keep in mind. Make sure you keep it on low heat! Do NOT increase the heat thinking that it will make it cook faster. You’ll just end up burning the semolina and then you’ve messed up your dessert and then you will be sad and then you will blame me which will make me sad and then that’s just not good. So, remember my top tip! It will seem like it is taking ages, but it is worth it. It will get browner and it will start giving of this really fragrant nutty smell. The waiting time is worth it.
When I was recording the YouTube video for this recipe, my arms were going to fall off. I don’t have a proper set up for where I record my videos and I have this mini table. I was sat in this really awkward and uncomfortable position and I had to stir it the whole time because I couldn’t let it burn and afterwards my arm was in pain. I don’t think people understand my dedication to cooking and my YouTube channel.
But anyways, try this sooji ka halwa recipe you will not regret it.
