This is my favourite suji recipe. I have tried others but this one always comes out perfect with no lumps. My kids really love it and eat it all up. Thanks for the recipe.

it is a nice basic recipe.i just only want to share that if only semilonia(suji) is fried on low flame in a pan until its colour changes and it starts giving a particular aroma,it should be removed from the flame and ghee added and mixed,no lumps will be formed and it will give a marvulous taste at the end.

wrong way around - see absolutely no point in preboiling to get sugar syrup

I agree with Soma and an aweful amount of saturated fat in Ghee in the recipe- I would at least half the volume and replace almost all ghee with conola oil or any unsaturated vegetable oil - watch your heart and your arteries!

Tried the recipe- it was not great. Found the halva too greesy and the taste was not so good. I have tasted much better halvas.

Suji Halwa should have milk in it; not water.

Replace the sugar with Stevia powder (natural sweetener)and/or honey; the ghee with olive oil; and water with skimmed milk. For a healthier snack!
