Sooji/ Rava/ Semolina is a versatile ingredient that can be used to make a number of dishes. I have shared several recipes using Semolina/ Rava/Sooji like Upma, Vegetable upma, Rava idli, Sooji ki firni, Rava laddoo, halwa, barfi, etc. And today, I am going to share a recipe of soft semolina barfi that is ideal for this festive occasion as it is delicious, easy to make and colourful.


1 cup sooji/rava/semolina
1 and 1/4 cups sugar
2 and 1/2 cups milk
pinch of cardamom/elaichi powder
4 tbsp ghee
yellow food colour dissolved in 2 tbsp milk
green food colour dissolved in 2 tbsp milk


  • Grease a mould or cake pan with ghee and keep ready.
  • Heat ghee in a non stick pan, add 1 cup sooji/semolina/rava and fry for about 5 minutes in medium flame till it turns slight golden and fragrant.
  • Now reduce flame to low, add milk and mix well. There should not be any lumps.
  • Continue cooking for 5 to 10 minutes in medium to low flame till the milk is absorbed and the sooji is cooked.
  • Add sugar and mix well. Cook for about 5 minutes, then add cardamom powder.
  • Mix well and continue stirring.
  • When the sooji mix has slightly thickened, divide the mix into two and transfer half to a plate.
  • To the other half on the pan, add yellow food colour dissolved in milk and mix well.
  • Continue cooking in low flame for a minute till it leaves the sides of the pan and then transfer the yellow coloured mix to the greased mould.
  • Gently press and make the mix even.
  • Then transfer the first part of the mix back to the pan, add green colour dissolved in milk. Mix well and continue cooking till it leaves the sides of the pan.
  • Switch off the gas and transfer the mix to the mould with the yellow mix and press well.
  • Allow the mix to cool down completely. Refrigerate for a couple of hours.
  • Use a knife to loosen the edges and unmould the barfi.
  • Cut it into pieces. Our soft semolina barfi is ready to be served.
  • You can also place it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. This sweet stays good for a week if refrigerated.
