Kesari Suji Halwa in Microwave

When comes to making dessert, Microwave makes it more simpler and delivers a great outcome. I tried this Kesari Halwa that day from my microwave cookbook and it came out so great and without any effort. I made this same Kesari halwa on stove top also, but it took me at least 20 minutes. I couldn't make any difference in taste or even in texture. From now on, I'm going to make this easy, yummy and nutritious dessert only in MW. Because, there is no point wasting time in cooking when I can get the same result in just 6 minutes only.

Ingredients :
Suji/semolina : 1 cup(roasted)
Sugar : 1 cup
Water : 2 1/2 cups
Ghee/clarified butter : 2 tblsp.
Few cardamoms
Kesar/saffron : few strands
Handful of almonds
Raisins : few

Method :
  • In a microwave safe bowl, place all the ingredients and mix well. 
  • Microwave for 6 mins. at high or 100% power. Give a good stir after 3 mins., cook the rest 3 mins. After 6 mins. it will look like this.
    • Stir well and garnish with cardamom powder, nuts and raisins. Serve hot.
    This is going to my event, MEC : Combo meal, along with Rainbow Pulao and Aloo Matar paneer ,,,, event is a brainchild of Srivalli of Cooking 4 All Seasons
