Sooji Barfi

Happy Diwali !!...may the festival of lights bring brightness into your homes and heart. Have a wonderful year ...!!

Ingredients :

Sooji: 1 cup
Sugar : 1&1/2 cup
Ghee/clarified butter : 1 cup
unsweetened evaporated milk : 1 cup
Roasted Almond and Roasted Cashew ( finely shredded) : 1 cup
Saffron : few strands
Cardamom : 1 tsp finely powdered
khoa: handful (optional)

In a non-stick pan heat the ghee and roast the sooji for a min or two. Switch the heat off and add the sugar, cover for 2-3 min. Now add the evaporated milk, almond, cashew, saffron and cardamom. Stir until you see a little ghee come up on the sides of the pan. You can add khoa too. Spread the mixture onto a flat, greased plate. Let it cool for 10- 12 min, now cut into squares or diamond shapes with the help of a pizza cutter.

Note : the sequence should be sooji followed by sugar, if you add the evaporated milk before sugar the sooji will cook and it will be more like a halwa (pudding) and not set like a barfi.
