Quick Indian sweet recipe:

This raisins and pistachio-rich soft and savory Semolina Pudding recipe does not need milk. The aromatic sweet taste and easy preparation are what we love the most about this Indian sweet. Besides, Suji (semolina) is made from durum wheat and not the softer wheat that goes into bread. This digests more slowly and has a low glycemic index that keeps weight and blood sugar in control. Hence it is super healthy for kids as well.

The twist here is that we mix wheat flour with durum wheat to make it more healthy and yummy. Also, we are not sticking to a regular dry fruit selection here. Instead of almonds and cashews, we are going to go with beautiful, nutty, and healthy pistachios + lovely raisins. Pistachios are rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acids like Oleic Acid and an excellent source of antioxidants. Raisins are fat and cholesterol-free, again high in antioxidants, contain fructose (natural sugar) and glucose for sustained energy. This quick Indian sweet recipe is a good source of potassium, iron, and dietary fiber which is excellent news for kids. However, don’t include them in the pudding if it’s being prepared for a 6 to 9-month-old.

The Suji Halwa (Semolina Pudding) is now ready for serving. Try this awesome quick Indian sweet recipe and include your kids in the V-day fun time. Share your experience in the comments below. Happy Valentine’s Day all!
