Sooji kheer or suji ki kheer is an almost instant dessert. Today after lunch, I was craving something sweet so within no time, I prepared sooji ki kheer and polished it off as quickly. This kheer can also be called as 'Rava Payasam'. Sooji ki kheer is also good for infants as it is very light to digest.
Recipe of sooji ki kheer
1 liter milk
3/4 cup sooji (rava/ semolina/ suji)
1/2 cup sugar
A big pinch cardamom (elaichi) powder
Few threads of saffron
Chopped and toasted nuts like cashew nuts, raisins etc.
1. Dry roast sooji in a heavy bottomed pan (kadhai) over low heat till light brown. Soak the saffron threads in 1 tablespoon milk.
2. Bring the milk to boil. Add sooji little by little, constantly stirring with other hand so that no lumps are formed.
3. Cook over high heat till the mixture begins to thicken. Add sugar and cardamom powder and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Add saffron and mix well.
4. Garnish with nuts and serve sooji ki kheer hot or cold.
