Anytime Festive Sweet - Sooji Halwa aka Pull Halwa - Not It is not Kesari

Sooji Halwa aka Pull Halwa - Not It is not Kesari 

One day when I went to Mom's house, she had made this. I thought it will taste just like Kesari, one mouth and I was surprised. It was extremely, extremely tasty and had layers of flavours.

Believe you, you will  go for 2nd,3rd,4th,5th servings for sure.

Sooji/Rava - 1 Cup
Ghee - 1+1/2 Cup
Milk - 3 Cups (Boiled and at Room Temperature- Dont add Raw Milk, it will split)
Sugar - 2 Cups
Cashewnuts - 1/4 Cup


  • Take a Kadai and add one cup of ghee and when it is slightly warm add the Sooji and saute it.
  • Saute it for 3-5 minutes. Then reduce the flame to the minimum and add the Milk and stir.
  • Cook till the Sooji is done. This may take about 5-8 minutes.
  • Then add the sugar and stir it.
  • Now cook this halwa on low flame till the ghee oozes out from the halwa.
  • You can cover the Halwa and stir it every 2-3 minutes to avoid burning.
  • Meanwhile, take the rest 1/2 Cup of Ghee in a another kadai and warm it and add the cashewnuts.
  • Saute the Cashewnuts till they are crispy and done. Ensure it does not change colour.
  • Now add the cashewnuts along with the ghee to the prepared Halwa and stir.
  • Now your Fabulous tasting Halwa is ready.
