Semolina pudding or sooji ka halwa is a very simple yet super Delicious dessert you can prepare in minimum time and enjoy any time. It is also called rawa keshari with little orange ( keshari) colour in it.
The ideal proportion for this pudding is 1:1:2:4 :: semolina:ghee:sugar:water
But being a calorie conscious mom I used to balance ingredients according to necessity only . Even then the end product was nothing less than ghee and sugar laden authentic rawa keshari.
In addition I added lots of almonds and few walnuts too for making it much more nutritious to my fussy eater.
This is one of the important dish from Navratri bhog also. So this navratri prepare it and offer to Goddess Durga .
Sharing mine version of sooji ka halwa. Hope you all will enjoy this healthy cum yummy delight.

* Amount of water added is on your choice of halwa consistency. If want nice fluffy halwa then add less water but for porridge consistency use more water.
* As My Lil one don't like any dryfruits that's why I added powdered one. You can add any dryfruits of your choice and chopped too.
* You can also use some milk to make it rich.
