Sheera

I am very excited to finally post my hundredth recipe.  I wanted to make something elaborate for this post but then due to lack of time couldn't do it.
But then what else I thought could be more elaborate than the sheera or the prasad of Satyanarayan pooja.
So I made this sheera with the same measurements and offered it as neyvedyam to Goddess Shantadurga during one of the Navaratri days .

Ingredients :

1 and 1/4 cup .....................Rawa (Semolina)
1 and 1/4 cup.....................Pure ghee (Sajuk toop)
1 and 1/4 cup..................... Sugar
1 and 1/4 ............................Ripe banana
1 and 1/4 cup....................milk
2 and 1/4 cup....................water
1 tbsp............................almond slivers( badam kaap)
1 tbsp..............................raisins (kismis)
1/2 tbsp.........................cardamom powder
1 pinch............................kesar






Method :

Mix the water and milk and heat it and keep ready.
Heat the ghee and fry the chopped banana slices till golden.
Remove and keep banana slices  aside.
In the same ghee add rawa and go on frying it on medium flame till it is
golden coloured and gives out nice aroma.
Add the heated water milk mixture, sugar banana and cook till almost done.
Add the almong slivers , cardomom powder and kesar.
Cover the lid and cook for 5 more minutes.
The prasad is ready.
