Rava sheera is quick to make dessert and thus made most widely. Go to any temple in India and it’s sure to get this dessert as a Prasad (Offering).I remember when I was child I used to eat sheera for breakfast. My mother used to add lots of dry fruits and ghee to make it rich breakfast for me and my brothers. We used to eat variety of sheera for our breakfast like almonds sheera ,banana sheera , atta sheera , Rava kesari. It was feast to have it as a breakfast. I make sheera every time with some different touch .Now I add extra ingredients , seasonal fruits like mangoes , pineapple to make mango sheera , pineapple sheera.
Most important thing I like about Rava sheera is it gets ready quickly and with very few available ingredients. As its easy to digest it can be given to young babies while starting solids.While making it for babies add more liquid ingredients to make it soft, runny.
Tip: For making rava sheera ,rava/ semolina needs to be roasted on low flame until nice aroma comes out and it turns lightly pink. If it’s not roasted properly ,rava sheera will become sticky and wont taste good as well.
