Sooji Ka Halwa (In Microwave)

Weekend breakfasts are the high point for me. Me and A both have not one but 2 sweet teeth, love to have something sweet on sundays(and whenever in the week if its possible!). Therefore I love making Sooji ka halwa on sundays as an add on. These days I make it in Microwave.

The following recipe will easily serve 4 people.


3/4 cup of Sooji (semolina)
5-6 Tbsp of Sugar (or as per taste)
3 Tbsp of Ghee (clarified Butter)
2 Cloves
Handful Raisins, cashews
2 Cups of Water

  1. Heat the Sooji in a bowl/broad dish in Microwave at 450 for 8 mins. Stir in between at 2 - 2.5 mins.
  2. Take it out and add the 2 Tbsp ghee (save some for later). Mix well and heat it again at 450 for 3 mins. Stir at every 1 min. Be careful not to let it burn. If not stirred regularly the sooji at the bottom and the edges will burn.
  3. Take it out.It should be golden brown by this time.
  4. Add 2 cups of water ,sugar and clove. Mix well.
  5. Keep the mix in Microwave for at max power till the water dries off and the mix is soft (usually it will take 8-10 mins). Take it out
  6. Roast the raisins,cashews (preferably seperately one by one) in 1 Tbsp ghee in a MW safe dish for 15secs-30secs at max power(900 for me). They should turn light brown.I prefer to do this part on stove since the raisins sometimes turn sour and hard in MW.
  7. Add the raisins/cashews to the Sooji Halwa, mix and serve it hot.
