Divine Semolina Dessert - Suji Halva

35 mins (prep 5, cooking 30)
9 ingredients
6-8 servings
This is a recipe from Kurma Das, the world best vegetarian cook. I can vouch for this dessert, it is TO DIE FOR. To many aficionados of Hare Krishna cooking worldwide, halava rates on top of the list of their favourite dishes. It's hot, buttery, sweet, flavoursome and completely satisfying, especially on a cold winter's day. In this recipe, the humble semolina teams up with the world's two most expensive spices - saffron and cardamom. Enriched with sultanas and flaked almonds, serve fluffy, plump grained halava hot with cream, custard, or as is for an epicurian experience.
