Sooji Halwa is prepared for many religious occasions. One of them is Navratri Pooja, In this halwa is prepared along with kala chana and puri. Sooji halwa is prepared in every household differently but method is same. Some people they roast Sooji in darker color, some in lighter color. So color and Sugar depends on taste and likings.

I usually add less sugar in this recipe i used half cup sugar so proportion for sooji, ghee, sugar and water will be like 1:0.5:1:2  this is the usual ratio but you can increase and decrease sugar and water according to taste.
