Sooji Halwa With Ghee Roasted Dates And Raisins

Sooji Halwa | Semolina Halwa | Rava Sheera is one such humble and pious Indian sweet which is made during all the occasions and festivals. It is associated with god and goddess and offered as prasadam to them. Be it any festival or any kind of occasion Sooji halwa is always made at my place. It is easy to prepare and it gives a very spiritual feeling. My younger daughter likes it a lot so I also prepare as an after-school snack for her and at times even give her in her lunch box.
I usually add almonds and raisins but this time I have added ghee roasted Dates with raisins as my daughter loves dates. So just gave a little tweak by adding these dry fruits. As always my daughter relished it and went ga ga about this halwa.

She demands this halwa even for breakfast and I am more than happy to cook this for her. It’s healthy and delicious which gives her the energy and boosts her to carry on activities.
