Sooji (or semolina) is a common fixture in Indian kitchens. From sooji ka halwa to sooji ka chila, we can use the flour in an array of quick and wholesome delicacies. It is a good thing that it is considered among the healthier flour alternatives. Yes, you heard us! Semolina is a flour made of durum wheat, and packs more nutrition than all-purpose flour. The versatility of sooji has inspired many chefs to conceive a range of dishes, simply because it is so easy to work with. If you are craving something sweet, and the time crunch does not allow you to experiment a whole lot, then you can simply roast some semolina, mix it with boiling milk, a few chunky nuts and aromatic spices, for a toothsome kheer. Yes, it is that easy.
Here is a step-by-step recipe video from NDTV Food's YouTube channel.
