Suji ka halwa recipe | Rava sheera recipe | sooji sheera

Suji ka halwa is a popular Indian dessert that tantalizes taste buds with its rich flavors and unique texture. This delectable sweet treat is made from suji (semolina), ghee (clarified butter), sugar, milk, and an array of aromatic spices. Cherished across the subcontinent for its delightful blend of flavors, velvety texture, and irresistible aroma, suji ka halwa is a favorite among many.

I’ll share the perfect ingredient ratios and a few fail-safe tips to help you make the perfect suji ka halwa or sheera on your first attempt. Do give it a try!

The key to making perfect suji ka halwa at home are
  1. Firstly, use coarse sooji or rava for the best texture and consistency in the halwa. Do not try fine rava or bansi rava in sheera. Also, make sure to roast the rava really well; otherwise, the sheera will not taste good.
  2. Secondly, for perfect sheera, use a simple ratio of 1:1:1:3 of semolina, ghee, sugar, and milk. This ratio is easy to follow, but you may adjust the amount of sugar based on your preferred level of sweetness. Adding caramelized sugar will enhance the flavor of the rava sheera.
  3. Once the milk and sugar mixture are added, make sure to stir continuously, or there are chances for lumps to form.
  4. Lastly, suji halwa tastes great when served slightly warm.
