How to make Banana Suji Halwa

Heat a pan and add 1 tsp ghee to the pan.

When the ghee melts, add suji/ raw and roast it while continuously stirring it.

After couple of minutes, once the sufi gives out a nice aroma, add hot water to it. Adding hot water ensures there are no lumps.

Let is cook for a while.

In the meantime, grate or mash the bananas to a smooth consistency.

Once the suji has cooked and thickened a bit, reduce the heat and add mashed bananas to it. 

Close the heat and mix the bananas well with suji.

The sheera keeps getting thin as it cools, so do not make it very thick.

A yummy meal for your baby is ready just in a few minutes.

Tips for Banana Suji Halwa:

  • As your baby grows, you may add a pinch of cardamom powder to the banana sheera/ halwa for a nice taste and aroma.
  • If you feel that the sheera/ halwa is too thick, add a little of warm baby’s milk to adjust the consistency.
  • As your baby turns to a toddler, you may also add a little sugar or jaggery though bananas have enough sweetness.

    What is the shelf life of this halwa?

    1. Priya Sachan says:

      This should be made fresh as much as possible, but I guess you could keep it in fridge for a few hours.
