Doodh Suji/ Semolina Porridge…whenever I would feel a bit under the weather, I would run to ‘Mommy’…and since this is the first time I am away from home for this long (6 months this month) and running to Mommy is not as easy as it used to be, the next best thing would have to do J…my go-to breakfast (drink?) when I am not feeling 100 percent and missing Ma L
Doodh Suji/ Semolina Porridge
- Suji/Rava/Semolina, 1 tbsp
- Milk, 1 cup/250 ml
- Ghee, ½ tsp
- Sugar, 2 tsp or to taste
- Almonds, finely sliced, 4-5 (either buy slivered almonds or soak almonds in warm water for an hour or so and finely slice)
- Raisins, 4-5 (optional, I always skip)
Instructions:Heat ghee in a small pan on low heat.
When the ghee melts and gets warm, add suji.
Mix well and roast the suji in ghee on low heat and constant stirring for about 3-4 minutes. Suji needs to turn a shade or two darker and become fragrant. Do constantly keep on stirring – don’t let it turn dark brown or burn (if it does, start over!!)
Add milk and raisins. Stir and bring the milk to a gentle simmer.
Add sugar and stir. Simmer for another couple of minutes.
Switch of the heat and sprinkle almonds.
- The consistency is slightly thinner than custard. If you want a thicker consistency, increase the suji to 1 ½ tbsp and let the milk simmer for additional 5-6 minutes.
