  • sooji - 1cup
  • Ghee - 3/4 cup
  • Sugar - 1.5 cups
  • water - 3 cups
  • Bananas - 1,medium size
  • Kesar powder or Orange food coloring
  • Kaju and kishmish to garnish
  • 1/2 tsp - elaichi powder
  • How to Make Banana Kesari:

    1. Heat a kadhai and add ghee. Add kaju, kishmish and sooji and fry well till golden brown. In a separate vessel, heat water to boiling point. Add sugar and banana and mix till bananas are mashed nicely.
    2. Add saffron powder and elaichi powder.
    3. Add this banana and sugar mix slowly to the frying sooji and keep stirring constantly.
    4. Add the water completely and mix. It may look watery but the sooji will absorb the water and ghee will float on top.
    5. Remove and serve hot. Milk can be added in place of water to make it more rich, or a mixture of water and milk can also be added.
    6. Pine apples can be added in place of banana to make it pineapple sheera.
