Sooji/ rava / semolina is widely used in Indian cooking for cooking a variety of dishes. From sweets to savoury, it is used to make several delicacies. Today, in this post I am sharing some semolina recipes that are easy to prepare and taste delicious.

Double layered Semolina Barfi

 I make this sweet often during holidays as my daughter loves it. Since this semolina barfi is made of milk, it comes out soft and is very healthy. Rava barfi stays fresh in the refrigerator for 4 to 5 days.
