Semolina pudding (sooji payesh) is a very special Indian (Bengali) dessert. My mum makes the most delicious semolina pudding- this dessert reminds me of my childhood! It is my hubby’s favourite Bengali dessert and it always brings a smile on his face. I thought I should try a variation of the traditional sweet dish- added some mango to it. I am very happy with the twist ‘mango sooji payesh’ and wanted to share the recipe!
