I decided to post Rava Sheera as my Blog’s First Recipe. Its a Gujarati Sweet, usually made as prasad during the full moon (poonam) for Lord Satyanarayan Bhagwan at most of the Gujarati Houses. Its rich and tastes delicious. One of my Favorites and very very easy to be made.
Rawa 1 cup
Sugar 1 cup
Ghee 1 cup
Milk 3 cup
Cardamom Powder 1 tsp
Blanched Almonds cut in julienne (long) few
Tulasi patta(leaf) if offered as prasad.
In a pan add 1 cup ghee and rawa and raisin and roast it properly till the rava leaves its aroma and turns light brown.
Now add milk and keep stirring till milk reduces.
Now add sugar and cook. Here the sheera will become thick, But once the sugar melts it will tend to become soft.
Now add the cardamom powder and mix well.
Garnish with almonds.
After adding sugar if also the sheera is quite thick, then you can add little milk to make it softer.
You can add Almonds, Cashews roasted in ghee and add while adding the cardamom powder, if you like the crunch and want to make it more rich.
