Sooji Ka Halwa (Semolina Halwa)

I am blogging like after 3 months. Lot of happenings. Left Chennai shifted to Mumbai and now finally settled here.
Its the onset of winters. u dont have much of a winter here in Mumbai but I guess the feeling of it does not go, So I made this Sooji ka Halwa quiet common in all the households.... The best part of having this halwa is straight from the pan, when it done and its burning hottt....!!
