Soji (Semolina)

~Recipe Credit: Umm Yusuf Mall~


  • 1 cup coarse semolina
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 300 ml cream
  • 1 – 1 1/4 cup sugar (to taste)
  • 3 tbsps ghee
  • 2 carrots (peeled & grated)
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • desiccated coconut (optional)
  • mixed nuts (chopped) (optional)


  1. Recite Bismillah.
  2. In a pot cook the semolina with the ghee till oil releases.
  3. Meanwhile in another pot make a ‘syrup’ by bring the milk, cream, cardamom powder & sugar to a boil. Do not over cook this or boil it for longer as this will make your soji very sticky & chewy. Set aside.
  4. Once the oil has released from the semolina add the carrots & cook for a 2-3 mins, stirring continuously.
  5. Add the syrup to the above mixture.
  6. Cook on low heat with a flat skillet underneath for 15 mins stirring occasionally.
  7. Garnish with mixed nuts & coconut! Enjoy!
