Delicious Sooji/Semolina Pudding
Sooji is a delicious dessert that is made with semolina. Sooji is also known as soji and suji. It is a quick and easy dessert and there are many variations of this recipe. One can add ground almonds, or pistachios or exclude these ingredients. Raisins are also optional.
This recipe is vegan. However if you prefer to use regular milk or butter, you may do so.
Sooji is a popular dessert at Indian weddings in South Africa. It is also served with cream on the side. This is optional. It tastes just as good without the cream
I have limited the amount of sugar in this recipe. Add more sugar if you prefer it sweeter. On the other hand you may substitute the sugar for artificial sweetener if your doctor suggests that you reduce your sugar intake. Just follow the same recipe but add your sweetener instead of sugar.
