This pudding can be made without egg also. I will post the eggless version soon. I tried many different combinations, this is the one which came out perfectly. The sweet is not too much but still, it satisfies the sweet tooth. It’s not heavy, It just steamed to perfection.

To get this texture and smoothness, I tried 3 attempts. This pudding taught me, never to give up, just improve every time and give a try again. It’s all worth it. If you are getting guests at home for lunch, this could be a great dessert after the main course. So give a try and share your feedback without fail and tag your pictures at social media with a hashtag of malinispace. I would love to see it.

Equipment

  • Steamer

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Sugar For Caramel (1 cup = 240 ml)
  • 1/4 cup Sugar For pudding
  • 1/4 cup Rava
  • 1 1/2 cup Milk Full cream
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Cardamom powder
  • Ghee To grease the bowl

Instructions

  • It's advisable to use a bowl type glassware or any steamable utensil to make this pudding. So that the shape would come out well.
  • First grease the glassware or bowl with ghee. So that it won’t stick, when you take the pudding out. It’s important to grease before making caramel, once the caramel is made we need to pour into the bowl immediately, otherwise, it will become thick. So make sure to grease the bowl first.
  • Now take 1/4 cup of sugar in a saucepan. Place it on the stove. Start heating it. Keep stirring, the sugar will start melting.
  • Once the sugar completely melts, the colour of the sugar turns into a golden brown colour. It quickly gets thicken also. You have to watch it properly, once the colour turns immediately you need to turn off the stove. Within seconds the sugar will burn and it would give a bitter taste. So be careful, do not burn, as soon as the colour changes, stop boiling.
  • Immediately pour into the bowl, it will be very hot, so be careful. Tilt and make sure the caramel is spread evenly in the bowl.
  • Now let’s make the Rava pudding part. First, take a Kadai, add the milk into the Kadai, start boiling it.
  • When the milk starts boiling add the sugar and stir well for 2 mins.
  • Now the sugar must have melted, add the Rava also into that milk.
  • Stir well, do not make any lumps. Once you get the kheer consistency, stop and add the cardamom powder. Mix it and keep it aside. Do not over boil it, it will become very thick.
  • Now take another bowl, add the eggs and beat well. Once the egg is ready, mix the egg with Rava mixture and combine everything well without any lumps.
  • Once you get the smooth texture, transferred to the caramel bowl.
  • Now get the steaming vessel ready with water and place the bowl, cover it, then turn on the stove. I used electric steaming cooker. So the timing varies accordingly.
  • For me, it took 35 mins, to get completely ready. Some people it sets in 30 or 20 mins. It’s totally according to your vessel and the equipment you use. To check whether, it sets or not, use a knife. If it comes out clean, it is ready, or else continue steaming.
  • The important thing, once it is done is you have to wait until it cools down well, otherwise the pudding will fall apart when you take. So make sure it completely cools down. I kept outside at room temperature for an hour and in the freezer for an hour. The resting time is very important, do not compensate on that.
  • Once it is done. Take it out, just insert the knife on the sides, to make sure it won't stick when you reverse it on a plate. Cover with a plate carefully, and just turn upside down quickly. place it on the countertop, pat the bowl slowly. the pudding will fall on the plate with caramel on top.
  • It will look gorgeous, with that caramel spread.
    Just slice it and enjoy the sooji pudding with your family and friends post lunch or evening with a cup of tea or coffee.
