Rawa Rasmalai-Semolina sweets

Rawa Rasmalai

As long promised here is another  recipe for a rawa /suji semolina dessert.


1 cup suji
1 coconut, ground
1 cup sugar
5-6 elaichi/ cardomom, powdered
1 tbsp ghee
1 1/2 litres milk

Heat ghee in a kadhai and roast the suji for a couple of minutes. Add the ground coconut and half of the sugar. On low heat keep on stirring the mixture till the sugar dissolves. Add the cardamom powder. When the mixture begins to get sticky take off fire and form small oval shaped balls. Set aside for a couple of hours.
Boil the milk and add the rest of the sugar. Keep simmering on low heat  till the milk becomes half its original quantity i.e. 750 ml. Now immerse the suji rolls gently into the hot milk.Remove from fire. Let it cool. Chill for at least half an hour before serving.
