Rava sheera

Again, I made this today, along with the kala chana for Dasherra! Enjoy! :)

Happy Dasherra! :)

1 cup rava(sooji, semolina)
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons ghee(clarified butter)
a pinch of saffron
3/4 teaspoon of cardamom powder
2 tablespoons coarsely ground pistachios and almonds


In a saucepan on medium heat, roast the rava for alteast 10 minutes till it browns up a bit. Then add in the ghee, and saute it till well blended for abou 2-3 minutes.

Add in the saffron in a little bit of the milk, and microwave it for a few seconds to get the color from the saffron. Add this to the remaining milk and add the milk to the rava mixture. Mix it well. Add in the sugar and the cardamom powder and the almond and pistachios. Blend it well for a few minutes. And its done! Yes, you have a desert in no time at all!

Garnish with coarsely chopped almond and pistachios.

Thank yo Amisha for your Rava sheera receipe. I am trying this evening to prepare my Satyanarayan Katha's prasad. I will pray for you to Lord Satyanarayan. I have seen some other receipe, I can imagine that you must be a good cook.
