Semolina pudding cooked in a desi style is a traditional Gujarati sweet often called ” Seero”. It’s one of those easy to make sweets that Gujarati’s are always finding excuses to make. Most people make it with sugar and milk and is often used as Prashad (offering) for Satyanarayan katha (religious ceremony). I have made it the traditional way – using jaggery (Gor) and water. Again this Halwa/seerorecipe is one handed down from my father who was a diabetic. His excuse for being allowed to eat this sweet was that it did not contain sugar!! He was cheeky enough to tell us that diabetics could use jaggery instead of sugar!! Bless him – he enjoyed it and never suffered any ill effects. This seero is nice to have on its own when you have lost your appetite or when you are recovering from a cough or cold. It’s also good for women who have just had babies. Gujarati’s believe that this sweet helps one to recover from mild illnesses.
