Something sweet recipe - 'Halwa'
This is a very easy recipe and very tasty.
Ingredients: 200 gm or half pound semolina
100 gm refined cooking oil or unsalted butter (preferably unsalted butter)
100 gm sugar
one tablespoon de-seeded raisins, quarter cup chopped almonds (optional)
Use a frying pan or a wok for this recipe. Please use low heat setting.
Melt butter (or pour oil and heat) in the pan.
Add semolina. Use a wood spatula to turn semolina quickly so that butter/oil mixes with semolina.
Keep on turning until semolina becomes golden/brownish from white.
Add 2 cups of water and sugar. Keep on turning until the all ingredients are mixed. Now add raisins/almonds. Keep on turning until water is fully absorbed by semolina and the mixture becomes hard to turn.
Now switch off the heat, and cover the frying pan for 10 minutes. This will make the semolina fluffier and cool down the 'halwa' as well.
Serve hot as a side with lunch or dinner, or enjoy with toast in breakfast.
