  • 1 cup semolina (sooji)

  • 2 plums, sliced

  • 1 tsp. butter

  • 1/4 tsp. cardamom powder

  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • 1/2 cup castor sugar

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1 tbsp. pistachios, sliced or any dry fruits

  • 1 tbsp. cherries, chopped

  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder

  • In a bowl mix together semolina, salt, cardamom powder and sugar. Then add in the butter, followed by the yoghurt and milk. Combine everything well and leave aside for 15-20 minutes.
  • Heat butter in a pan and saute the sliced plum for a minute on a medium flame. Set aside to cool down.
  • After 20 minutes, check the consistency of the semolina mix. It should neither be too dry or too soft. Add more milk if required.

  • Bake in an oven at 180 degrees C. for 20-25 minutes. Do the toothpick test to ensure it is perfectly baked.
  • Cool on a wire rack and sprinkle some caster sugar. Garnish with a small piece of cherry and enjoy as a tea-time snack.
