Ingredients for Orange Sooji Halwa

How to make Saffron Sooji Halwa
To make orange semolina pudding, put ghee in a pan and heat it on low flame. After the ghee melts, add semolina and fry till it becomes light brown. Meanwhile, in another vessel, add sugar and a cup of water and make sugar syrup on the gas. Now take saffron and grind it and put it in the syrup and mix it well with the help of a spoon. Meanwhile, keep stirring the semolina continuously so that it does not stick to the bottom.
Take dry fruits (cashews, almonds, pistachios) and chop them finely. Dip them in semolina and mix. It may take at least 10 minutes for the semolina to cook properly. In the meantime, when the syrup starts to boil, then turn off the gas. When the rava comes to a boil, add sugar syrup and mix the mixture well with the help of laddoos. After increasing the flame of the gas, keep stirring the cucumber with laddoos. Stir until the pudding begins to float out the sides of the pan.
After cooking for at least 4-5 minutes, turn off the gas and cover the halwa well. Now let the orange semolina pudding cook a little more with the help of steam. After a while remove the lid. Delicious orange semolina pudding is ready to be offered to Hanumanji. If you want, you can also garnish the halwa with dry fruits.
