Semolina Cococnut Halwa

          Semolina Halwa in general is a very common and an all time favourite dessert prepared during auspicious occasions and ceremonies. It is very easy and simple to make. I just gave a twist from my side by adding equal quantity of fresh grated coconut to enhance the flavour. It can be relished as it is, as an after meal dessert or as a side dish with poori / paratha.  

  • 1/2 cup semolina
  • 1/2 cup fresh grated coconut
  • 1 tbsp. ghee
  • 3-4 tbsp. sugar or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. cardamom powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 & 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup chopped dry fruits (walnuts, raisins, cashews, cranberries, apricots, dates, etc.)
  • 1 tbsp. tutti frutti (opt)

          Heat ghee in a pan / kadai. Add the semolina and coconut. Stir fry for a while or till you get a nice aroma coming through. Add rest of the ingredients and mix well.

          Simmer on a low flame till it turns thick. Switch off the flame. Garnish with the tutti frutti and serve in individual bowls in room temperature or slightly chilled.
