Process of making Sooji Halwa:

  • Take a heavy bottom non stick pot , I used 8-quart stock pot
8 Quart stock pot
  • Heat pot over medium heat
  • Add ghee and nuts
  • Fry till they are golden brown and take out them in a bowl including ghee
  • Next add milk and boil
  • When milk started boiling add dry roasted semolina ( don’t add semolina at once it might form add semolina with one hand and mix it continuously with another hand using spatula)
  • Cook over low to medium heat
  • Next add sugar & mix well
  • Cook 2 mins, Next add ghee and mix well
  • Cook 5 mins and add roasted nuts

  • Happy cooking and enjoy your day πŸ™‚

Step by step process shown below with pictures:




  • Adjust sweetness according to taste
  • You can also melted Butter instead of ghee but from many years it’s our tradition to make sweets with ghee☺️
  • I used fine semolina so it tastes great, you could also use other variety of semolina but make sure to increase milk and sugar quantity
  • I prepared huge quantity to offer in temple during “Satyanarayana Swami Vratam” . If you’re preparing in home for festival or vrat at home make sure to decrease/ increase the quantity of ingredients else you can make it as usual to serve in temple as “prasadam”.. This quantity can serve approximately 50 people
