I have sweet teeth and I know many of you are like me. Sometimes, I have sudden craving for sweet dishes and this dessert always helps in rescuing me. Even children normally love sweets and this dish will be a treat to them. For Moms, it will be an instant dessert to bring big smile on their little ones’ faces.

I have learnt to cook this dessert from my mother. I still remember my school days, how she used to pack my tiffin box with this yummy Kheer and Poories and how gladly I used to share my tiffin box with my friends to bring smile to their faces too.

During Navaratri and Diwali, this dessert works great. Since my childhood, I have seen my Mom prepare many traditional desserts during these two festivals like Kesar Phirni, Chawal ki Kheer, Gajar ka Halwa and many more which takes a little longer to cook. But this instant dessert always used to bring happiness and relief on her face.

Reason behind its popularity

  • To prepare Sooji Ki Kheer, very limited ingredients required. Most of the ingredients are always available in every Indian house pantry.
  • To prepare this iconic dessert, it hardly takes 15-20 minutes without any hassle. For this reason, it is a great option for sudden guests.
  • It is a very popular dessert for festive season too. Usually during festivals, we need to prepare multiple numbers of desserts and such quick as well as delicious dessert helps a lot to reach the goal.
  • It has a very smooth and creamy texture and it is very easy to digest.
  • It is one of the best options to introduce as solid food for babies. You would just need to add less Sugar and skip the dry fruits and turn it into a healthy baby food.
  • It is one of the delicious and smart ways to make the growing children consume Milk without any hassles.
  • It is easy to eat for people of old ages too because of its smooth texture.


How to cook perfect Sooji Ki Kheer?

  • It is very important to select correct Rava for Sooji Ki Kheer. There are two types of Rava or Semolina available in the market. One is fine like dust and the other one is a bit coarse. I always use the second type for this dessert. It gives the perfect texture to the dish.
  • Always roast the Rava before adding into the Milk. It resists the Sooji Ki Kheer to become soggy and sticky and helps to bring best texture to the dish.
  • You can roast the Rava in any edible Oil like Olive oil, vegetable oil and Sunflower oil but the clarified Butter (Ghee) goes best with the recipe. It gives perfect aroma to the dish.
  • Use full fat Milk rather than skimmed Milk. It helps to make the Kheer creamier.
  • Always use a heavy bottom pan to cook this dessert. Otherwise, the milk may stick to the bottom of the pan.

I have used Cashews, Raisins and Almonds to the Sooji Ki Kheer. But you can add any of your favourite dry fruits. I have used refined white Sugar to sweeten the dish.

In this preparation, I have used Cardamom powder instead of Cardamom pods. You can use any one of these but make sure to discard the Cardamom pods before serving. A sudden bite of Cardamom pods can make your guests or friends unhappy and may waste all the efforts at once.
