Rava (Semolina) Kheer

A simple, quick dessert made from Rava/Sooji/Semolina.  You can try this with coconut milk and jaggery or brown sugar for a healthier version.

Rava/Sooji/Semolina - 1/3 cup (80 gms)
Milk - 3 cups
Sugar - about 2 tbsp
Cardamom - 2 pods
Ghee/Clarified Butter - 3 tbsp

Pistachios - 4
Almonds - 2
Cashewnuts - 2

1. Heat a thick bottomed kadhai/wok and add clarified butter.  Add semolina and fry till semolina turns slightly brown and fragrant.
2. Add 3 cups milk, ground cardamom and small pieces of all nuts.  Cook till semolina absorbs milk.   
3. Add sugar and cook till you get a desired consitency.  Add more milk if required, as semolina tends to absorb milk.
4. Rava/Sooji Kheer is ready.  Garnish with almond slices.
