Sooji kheer or Rava kheer recipe with step by step photos – a quick, easy and tasty kheer made with semolina or rava.

Here’s another easy dessert recipe for the festive occassion of Diwali. Like I had mentioned in my Paneer kheer post, that I will be adding some quick and easy Diwali sweets recipes.

rava kheer sooji kheer recipe

The sooji kheer recipe gets done in about 20 minutes and is so simple that even a newbie can make it easily. I usually make this kheer like the way I make Seviyan kheer.

This semolina pudding is easily digestible and works good even as a baby food, if you don’t add chopped dry fruits. instead just add ground dry fruits powder.

I keep the consistency of sooji kheer a bit thin and not thick like a porridge. But if you like a slightly thick porridge consistency, then do simmer for more time. In this case add less sugar than what is mentioned in the recipe. While making kheer, at times, I add some extra ghee. However you can reduce the the amount of ghee.

The rava kheer also works extremely good as an after dinner dessert. You can serve the sooji kheer hot, warm or chilled.
