With striking similarities in flavour and colour, powdered cashewnuts and grated coconut get along very well in this exciting sheera.

Rich in feel and flavour, this Kaju Kopra Sheera turns out wonderfully well if you sauté the ingredients carefully till they shed their rawness and start giving out an irresistible aroma. The slightly brown colour of the sheera, enhanced with saffron, makes it a pleasant slight to behold, and a pleasure to consume!

You can make it on any special occasion like Diwali , Christmas and Raksha - Bandhan or anytime when you like.
