Enjoy the fervor of Shab-E-Barat by cooking this lip smacking halwa at home.


1 cup semolina (sooji)

3/4 cup sugar

3 cups water

2 tablespoons raisins

1/4 teaspoon cardamom seed

1/2 cup ghee


In a pan add water and sugar. Boil it till the water dries up into half.
Turn off the heat & add the raisons (kish mish) in it. This would be yr sheera.

In a separate pan warm up the ghee on medium high and add cardamom seeds and semolina (sooji) in it. Keep on stirring it till the semolina turns a bit darker or golder brown. Note u can not leave the semolina unattended now since it can stick in the pan & burn up easily.

Stir fry it for 10 minutes.

Now add the sugar water & cook it for 6-7 mins on high.

Once the water dries up & the semolina puffs a little bit cover the pan & let it simmer for another 5 minutes.

Take out in a serving dish. Sprinkle some chopped dry fruits.
