  • Rava - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Milk - 1 cup
  • Water - 1.5 cups
  • Cardamom powder - 1 g
  • Dry fruits if required (almonds, cashews)
  • pinch of Saffron
  • Banana - 1 (crushed)
  • Ghee - 2 tbsp
  • How to Make Sweet Sheera:

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