Sooji Kheer / Semolina milk pudding

Sooji ki kheer is a creamy, delicious milk pudding made with Sooji / semolina. It is one of the easiest dessert to make when you crave for something sweets. Best served with hot pooris . Poori and kheer are one of the amazing combo and my family's favourite for sunday brunch.


  • 1 Tablespoon Ghee (clarified butter )
  • 3 Tablespoons Sooji / Rava / Semolina
  • 1 Tablespoon Raisins
  • 600 ml Milk ( I used full cream milk)
  • 3 Tablespoons granulated white sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon condensed milk
  • a big pinch of cardamom powder
  • a pinch of saffron
  • slivered roasted almonds and pistachios to garnish


1. In a pan, heat ghee on low flame. When the ghee melts, add sooji to the ghee and roast for 3 to 5 minutes until you smell a nice aroma of the roasted sooji
2. Add raisins to the pan and roast for a minute until they plum up.
3. Switch off the flame. Add 1/4 cup of milk to the sooji and gently stir in to dissolve the sooji in the milk without lumps
4. Now, add the remaining milk to the pan and stir. Switch on the flame again and simmer for 5 minutes
5. After 5 minutes, sooji will get cooked in milk and it will start floating up. At this stage, the pudding is ready
6. Stir in sugar , condensed milk , saffron and cardamom powder to the milk
7. Cook for a minute more and switch off the flame
8. Serve hot topped off with almonds and pistachios
