Recipe : Semolina Porridge | how to make sooji porridge

Semolina Porridge

When I think of porridge , The very first thing comes in mind is ‘oats’.I tasted oats porridge at shraddha(my non-blogger friend) ‘s home and i was like-‘ummmmmmm’ sooooo creamyyy.The best part of that recipe is NO SUGAR is added.after that experience i started searching about porridge recipes on internet.

What i come across is, It is the most staple recipe in Europe and Russia formally cooked with barely. American people also likes porridge a lot.There are so many varieties in porridge like Oats porridge, rice porridge, wheat porridge, corn porridge and buckwheat porridge.
Porridge is one of the healthy breakfast you can had.It is proven
that Breakfast is the most important meal of your day. one should not
avoid break-fast. It will keep you healthier,boost immune system and helps to balance your weight as well.Porridge is the combination of Dry-fruits, fresh fruits , Milk and whole grains.

I am sharing One of the variation of porridge which uses Semolina.
We often know Semolina as Sooji. Semolina /sooji is just an another form
of wheat.Sooji is versatile ingredient you will found in most indian
kitchens.I love sooji halwa and i already posted recipe before.
I am coming to my today’s recipe, I was planning to make Classic Oats
porridge but at time of cooking i found there is no oats at home 🙁 . So,Semolina porridge is a quick result .One of the best part of porridge recipe is they have dry-fruits, fresh fruits ,milk and grains-ALL IN ONE.

I am using chikoo and almonds in this recipe. semolina will take 6-8 min to boil perfectly in milk.I did not add SUGAR in this recipe.Time is reduced because i am using roasted sooji / semolina here otherwise it will take more 5-10 mins. This is the perfect breakfast recipe.
You can add sugar as well.however i usually avoid to have sugar. You can
use varieties of fruits as well . Combination is totally depends on
your liking.
