Recipe Ingredient

  • 1 cup semolina
  • 1/2 cup sugar (adjust as required)
  • 2 tbsp cashews, crushed
  • 1 tbsp raisins
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder or coarsley crushed cardamom seeds.
  • 1 tbsp rose water
  • A few drops of yellow colouring
  • 3 tbsp ghee


  1. Heat a wok or deep pan over low heat and gently roast the semolina. Just a gentle roast till the aroma of roasted semolina begins to rise. Do not brown or burn it.
  2. Remove from heat and in the same pan add 1 tbsp ghee and gently roast the cashews and raisin and keep aside.
  3. Heat the remaining ghee and when slightly heated, add milk ,water, colouring and cardamoms and bring to a boil. This can be done on medium heat.
  4. Now lower heat and add semolina slowly while constantly stirring to prevent the mixture from becoming lumpy. It´s important to keep stirring as this is the trick to this dessert.
  5. When the semolina has completely absorbed the liquid, add cashew and raisins. When the mixture forms to a complete ball without sticking to the pan, remove and spread in a deep square dish. When cool, cut as desired.
  6. You can adjust the sweetness to suit your taste.
