Sooji Halwa Breakfast Bowl Recipe
Sweet breakfast with halwa (Indian Semolina Porridge) along with fruits and nuts
Sooji Halwa Breakfast Bowl Recipe is simply a “Have more breakfast bowl” which gives you more nutrition than what we usually have as part of our breakfast.
Our breakfast is usually hurried or sometimes skipped too! But the whole idea is to have nutritionally pepped up breakfast to kick start a good metabolism which not only keeps you full for a longer time but also keeps you more active. I am all for breakfast bowls these days!
Making poha or upma or one of the infamous Indian breakfasts we usually end up making for the paucity of time or inclination? Include some raw vegetables, fruits or a bowl of curd with it. Add some protein in the form of sprouts, lentils or lean cheeses.
Coming back to my new breakfast bowl. Sooji Halwa Breakfast Bowl Recipe is a very light sooji halwa made with cane sugar and served with more fruits than the halwa. My daughter prefers a sooji halwa than upma so I make this often for her. You can as well serve this Sooji Halwa Breakfast Bowl Recipe for kids who prefer sweet breakfast to savoury, may be along with a Turmeric Milk Recipe (Haldi Doodh) and Boiled Eggs Recipe.

How to make Sooji Halwa Breakfast Bowl Recipe
To begin making Sooji Halwa Breakfast Bowl Recipe, get all the ingredients ready.
Heat ghee in a saucepan or kadai. Once hot, add semolina (sooji) and roast it on low heat till you get a nutty aroma from the pan.
Now add cardamom powder, cashews and almonds. Give it a mix.
At this stage, add water and cane sugar together and mix well (I used about 1-1/4 cup of water for 1/2 cup semolina. Add more water if required to maintain a nice halwa (or thick porridge) consistency.
Switch off once you see that the halwa is nicely cooked and the rava/semolina has reached its optimal cooked size.
Serve with a lot of fruits. I have served the bowl with coconut slices, banana, fresh figs, pomegranate and kiwi.
Garnish with slivered almonds and some cashews and you are good to go.
