I made this yesterday for Diwali. This makes enough for 2-3 people.
You need: 1/2 cup semiya, 1/2 cup sugar (or 3/4, if you like it really sweet), 2.5 cups milk, 1 pinch saffron, 1 tbsp ghee
- Heat the ghee in a saucepan on medium heat. Add the semiya and stir. Roast until golden-brown, stirring constantly.
- Warm a little milk and mix the saffron in it.
- Add just enough water to cover the semiya and let it cook. When the semiya is half-done, add the milk, sugar, and saffron. Stir well.
- Bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Eat hot or cold.
