  • Sugar 2 cups
  • Green Cardamom 3-4

  • 1. Put Semolina in a pan and stir it on a medium heat until you can smell the toasted suji. Stir continuously for 2-3 minutes as suji gets burnt quickly.

  • 3. Prepare sugar syrup on the side, put water in the pan when it comes to boil, put cardamom,sugar and food color, dissolve sugar fully, remove it from the stove.
  • 4. Put sugar syrup in semolina(be careful, don't burn yourself while doing that because syrup goes crazy when it is combined with semolina)
  • 5. Cook till you get the desired consistency.
