  • 1 cardamom pod bruised
  • 1 cup water freshly boiled
  • 1/2 cup hot milk
  • 1 teaspoon ghee or oil
  • pinch of salt
  • sugar to taste about 3-4 teaspoons for a mildly sweet taste
  1. Heat ghee in a pan. Toss in the cardamom and let it sizzle for a few seconds
  2. Add the semolina and roast it for a minute on a low heat
  3. Add the freshly boiling water and milk and stir continuously to avoid lumps from forming. Add the sugar to taste and the pinch of salt. Mix
  4. Cover the pan and let the porridge cook on a very low heat for about half minute till it thickens. Take care to see that it does not get scorched.
  5. When it reaches the desired level of thickness and the grains look transparent, take the pan off the heat. Remove the cardamom pod and serve immediately.
