Note: This sooji halwa recipe uses only 2 tsp ghee and use butter or oil. This saves a lot of calories from saturated fat in ghee. Don't be surprised for the use of oil. No body can notice any difference in the taste. Just try it. We have used it several times and all have relished our sooji halwa made according to this recipe.
