Sooji Halwa ( With Jaggery)





Sooji halwa is a sweet and delicious dessert and is one of the easiest halwa It is very easy to put together and will not take more than 10minutes. There is very little stirring unlike usual halwa preparation. It has the  inviting aroma of roasted sooji, cardamon and ghee and is perfect for any occasion. This recipe is inspired by the sooji halwa of Manjula's kitchen..I used the exact measurement but here I used jaggery instead of sugar.

Ingredients
Sooji/Rawa- 1/2 cup
Ghee - 1/4 cup
Powdered jaggery- 1/3 cup
Water- 1 1/2 cup
Cardamon- a pinch
cashew nut chopped- 2 tsp
Cashews for garnish



Boil water and jaggery till it is completely dissolved, strain and keep aside.
Roast sooji in ghee for five minutes till it is golden brown and there is a nice aroma.
Add jaggery syrup little by little and stir till the halwa gets thickened for 5 minutes. Add cardamon powder and roasted cashews.Pour into a greased plate and allow to cool and set.Garnish and serve.

Hope you will all enjoy..
