Yields4 Servings

 1 ½ cups Soji (Semolina)
 ½ cup Ghee
 ¾ cup mixture of cashews (coarsely chopped) and whole raisins/sultanas
 3 cups hot water
 ½ cup whole milk
 ½ cup sugar
 5 pods green cardamom split open
 Coarsely chopped dried fruits or nuts for garnish

1

Heat a deep pan over medium heat and when it is hot, add the ghee. When the ghee melts, add the soji and stir to mix well.

2

Roast the soji (stirring frequently) until it begins to turn a very light golden color and gives off a faint aroma. This aroma is enough to make your mouth water! The roasted soji will have the grainy consistency of wet sand at the beach.

3

Add the cashews and raisins to the soji and mix well.

4

While you are roasting the sooji, in a separate pot over medium heat, bring the water, milk, sugar, and cardamom to a rolling boil, stirring often.

5

This next step involves much bubbling and splashing so be prepared and careful! When the soji is roasted, gently add the water-milk mixture, stirring all the while to prevent lumps from forming. Sometimes it helps to have a cooking partner who will pour while you stir.

6

If any lumps do form, make sure to break them with the back of the stirring spoon so you get a smooth paste-like consistency.

7

Cook the mixture until it is thick and begins to come away from the sides of the pan.

8

Turn off the heat and allow the mixture to cool to lukewarm. Serve in individual bowls, garnished with coarsely chopped dried fruit or nuts if desired.

9

Serve and enjoy.
