Semolina sheera is a favorite in our Indian households,mostly prepared during festivals and puja. But for those who love it,they don't need to wait for either of these to eat it...... :) Such is the case in my house,my hubby likes this sheera very much. So Rava sheera is made more often compared to any other sweet.
It is basically made from semolina and milk. Its a bit heavy because of the added ghee,but sometimes you should just forget about your weight and enjoy such delicacies...hehehe!!! So what are we waiting for,lets get to work.
- Semolina (Sooji/Rava) - 2 cups
Ghee - 3 tbsp
Sugar - 2 cups
Milk - 2 cups
- Water- 1 cup
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
Cashewnuts -1 tbsp
- Take Ghee in a non stick pan and add Semolina to it. Roast until semolina turns golden brown. (Take care not to burn semolina).
- Continue for 2-3 minutes on a low flame.
- Remove the roasted semolina in a plate.
In the same pan roast the cashewnuts and keep them aside.
Now take milk and sugar in a pan and bring to a boil.Add cardamom powder and keep it on a low flame.
Slowly add semolina to the above milk mixture, stir the mixture well with a spatula and avoid any lump formation.
Add the cashews to this mixture and cook it till the ghee separates from the semolina.
Serve in a bowl.You can decorate it as per your liking.
