  • 1/4 cup oil or ghee
  • 3/4 cup fine suji semolina
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4-5 cardamom pods
  • Food color optional but recommended


  • In a pot, add oil followed by suji.
  • Stir and let the suji roast for 10-15 minutes on low to medium heat or until it gives off a nutty aroma. Make sure to keep stirring because the suji can burn very quickly.
  • While suji is roasting, on another stove, boil water.
  • Once water has come to a boil, add sugar followed by cardamom pods (crushed open).
  • Let the sugar dissolve completely about five minutes.
  • Pour the sugar syrup into the suji and continue cooking on low heat for a few minutes or until the suji has thickened up.
  • Add two drops of yellow food color.
  • Garnish with chopped nuts and serve warm.
