How to Make Sweet Sheera

  • Pour the rava in a deep vessel and roast for 2-3 mins on low flame (do not let the rava burn).
  • Add ghee and roast again for 3-4 mins on medium flame.
  • Sprinkle some water over the rava so that it absorbs moisture and swells in size.
  • Stir the rava and keep aside in a dish.
  • Pour sugar, milk and water in the same vessel used to roast the rava.
  • Add cardamom powder and stir well.
  • Add the dry fruits, saffron and banana. Bring the mixture to boil on low flame.
  • Add the roasted rava and stir quickly to avoid lumps.
  • Cover the vessel with a lid and allow the rava to steam-cook so that it forms a solid mass.
  • Serve hot with onion pakora or potato vada.
