Suji Ka Halwa Recipe | Sooji Halwa | Authentic Temple Style Rava Halwa with step-by-step photo and video recipe. Rava or semolina is perhaps one of the most important ingredients in Indian cuisine. It is used to prepare a myriad of dishes including breakfast, sweets, dessert, and even main course meals. With respect to dessert there are so many types and ways, it can be done, but the most common or popular choice is the suji ka halwa recipe known for its taste and simplicity.

In my blog, I have posted quite a few types of rava halwa which may have been referred to as sheera, kesari bath etc. But this recipe is an authentic halwa recipe that is typically severed in temples or prepared and served as prasadam for auspicious occasions. I had posted this previously, with just semolina, sugar, and ghee. However, I have re-created my old video with additional ingredients to make it more rich and creamy. Basically, I have added milk and Kesar combo which makes it more creamy and attractive in appearance. In other words, the halwa is prepared with saffron colour rather than just brown colour. I personally like it this way which can be easily served for any occasion. Do try this new way of preparing the traditional and authentic rava halwa and let me know if you liked it.

Firstly, the halwa is traditionally prepared in medium-coarse sooji or rava for the best consistency. Basically, it is the same rava used for upma or popularly known as bombay rava. Do not try fine rava or bansi rava as they may never yield the best consistency. Secondly, to make perfect sheera the simple ratio of 1:1:1 of rava, ghee, and sugar. This is easy and simple to follow but if you feel it may end up with too much sweetness, you may reduce the sugar (i have added ¾ cup of sugar here). Lastly, adding Kesar or milk is optional and you may skip it if you do not prefer it. As an alternative to it, you may add milk powder or even cooking cream for better taste and richness.
