Tuesday, July 31, 2012


Hi all,

My friend R. Punitha of South India Food Recipes shared this wonderful 'Sunshine Blogger Award' with me. She has a nice blog with a numerous adorable recipes. Thanks a lot Punitha for sharing this award with me. Please do visit her blog and tweak those wonderful recipes. I am really very happy to recieve this award. As per rules, I have to share with my ten blogger friends and that I will decide later. All blogger friends are deserved to get this award.

Now celebrate this award with 'semolina halwa', very easy, loved by all. A popular sweet dish from east to west, north to south, it is made by every Indian family, on any festival occasion, specially offered as prasad to God. When soft semolina, cardamom, sugar, coconut, milk and nutty crunchy dry fruits mixed up together, is very flavorful, magical and exotic.

1 cup Semolina (rava)
1 cup warm Milk
2 tbsps evaporated milk
3 tbsps grated Coconut (optional)
3 pods of Green Cardamom
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup mix dry fruits (cashewnut, raisin & cherry)
4 tbsps Clarified Butter (ghee)

Heat clarified butter in a frying pan. Add dry fruits followed by coconut in it. Fry for 30 seconds. Now add semolina in it. Fry for 3-4 minutes on medium heat.

Add sugar and mix well. Add warm milk, evaporated milk and crushed cardamoms, fold well. Reduce the flame low and stir continuously. When it gets thick and come to be sticky, remove from heat.
Garnish with dry fruits and serve.
