Ingredients (Buy locally grown organic ingredients, if possible)
1/2 cup ghee (make organic ghee at home)
1/2 cup semolina (sooji)
1/2 cup rock sugar or raw sugar, powdered
2 cups water, room temperature
2 tablespoons, raisins – optional
2 tablespoons, slivered almonds – optional
2-4 threads of saffron (kumkum or kesar), optional
1. Heat ghee in a heavy bottom broad pan at low-medium flame and add semolina to it. Roast it evenly at low-medium heat while stirring constantly to prevent burning.
2. Meanwhile heat water in a separate sauce-pan and keep it ready.
3. Once the color of semolina changes to deep brown, add the raisins and let it cook another 1 minute. Next, add the hot water while continuously stirring the mixture to avoid any lumps. Add sugar and saffron and mix it well. Cook for another 1 -2 minutes and then take off stove. Transfer it to individual serving bowls. Garnish with almonds and enjoy it hot.
Avoid consuming frozen desserts and ice-creams as it hampers the digestive process and leads to various digestive issues. Eat warm and freshly prepared meals for healthy digestion.
