SEMOLINA HALWA made by Satwinder Farmah
The Library Recipe Club had a cooking demonstration by Satwinder Farmah on Thursday, September 29, 2016.  Satwinder made Semolina Halwa a popular Indian dessert made with semolina, sugar, fresh shredded coconut, raisins and butter. You could eat this dessert hot or when it is cool.  You could could enjoy some tea or coffee with it. This dessert is easy to make and delicious for the whole family.
1 cup of Semolina (Sooji)
1 cup of sugar
4 cups of water
1 full stick of butter
1 handful of shredded coconut
1 handful of raisins
1 pinch of red food coloring for color
Melt butter in a large non stick pot.  While butter is melting, boil water in a separate pot and add a pinch of red food coloring when water boils.  Stir Semolina into melted butter.  Continue stirring for about 10 minutes until semolina and butter are light brown.  Add sugar, boiling water, shredded coconut and raisins into the pot with butter and Semolina.  Continue stirring for 5 to 7 minutes until everything starts to bubble.  Should look thick like oatmeal.  Serve hot or cold.
