  • In a deep, heavy based sauce pan, melt the ghee add the sooji and stir fry over medium/low heat, depending on how often you stir it.
  • after that add water and sugar over low heat and keep on simmer, till required.
  • When the sooji is light brown and gets a glossy look and does not stick together much (which means it is fried enough) , then simmer till the liquid is absorbed. At this stage you can stir off and on, not continuous.
  • Serve hot, garnished with the almonds.
