Sheera-Celebrating 25 posts with a sweet!!

Ok,technically this is my 26th post,the slide show came in unintentionally.I wanted my 25th post to be a sweet so continuing with this anyway.I am feeling very happy that my blog has 1200+ hits so far and I have completed 25 posts.It gives me a great sense of happiness and satisfaction.At this point I want to thank all of you who have given me immense support and encouragement without which I don't think I would have come this far.Thank you all!!

Coming to the sweet now,Sheera is an all time favourite in our family.Primarily because its so easy to make and if you have all the ingredients ready you can make it in a jiffy.Rava and sugar which constitute as the main ingredients are always there in the kitchen invariably.When I asked my hubby what I should post as my 25th post the first thing he said was Moong dal payasam(which is his favourite sweet).But tomorrow is Ugadi-Samsar padavo and the main sweet to be prepared is this payasam.On second thoughts he said sheera.We had some guests coming over and this was the best choice.So here it is,Sheera to all my dear readers!!Love you all!!



Rava - 1 cup
Sugar - 1cup
Water - 2 1/2 cups
Ghee - 3-4 tbsp
Cardamom powder- 1 tsp
Cashewnuts and Kishmish - for garnishing


In a kadai,pour 1 tbsp ghee and fry cashewnuts and kishmish.Keep aside.
In the same pan,pour another tbsp of ghee and fry the rava in it till a nice aroma comes.
Boil 2 1/2 cups water in a vessel.
Add water to the rava in the kadai and mix well.
Cook till the water absorbs completely and the rava becomes soft.
Add sugar and keep mixing.
Pour rest of the ghee and keep mixing till the sheera starts leaving the sides of the kadai.
Add Cardamom/Elachi powder.
Pour into a greased pan and cut into desired shapes or serve it in small bowls.
