Ingredients list for Suji Kheer

  • 1/2 cup Semolina
  • 7 1/2 cups Skimmed Milk
  • 7-8 strands Saffron (kesar)
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Sunflower seeds (charoli/chironji)
  • 20 Almonds blanched, peeled and slivered


  1. Take rawa in a thick-bottomed pan. Roast on low heat for fifteen minutes or till light brown. Soak saffron in one tablespoon of milk.
  2. Bring remaining milk to a boil and simmer on medium heat till it is reduced to one litre. Add reduced milk to rawa, stirring continuously to prevent lumps.
