Rava sheera and varieties
One of the most popular Indian sweets, the Rava Sheera is very easy to prepare. You just have to roast semolina, cook in a milk-water mixture and add sugar. To enhance the taste you can add dry fruits, cardamom powder and cook. While the classic version might take a long time, this will be ready in around 15 minutes if you use a microwave. You can make it quickly to surprise a sudden guest or to offer to God after puja. Apart from the normal sooji sheera, you can make endless varieties by adding different flavoring agents and essences.
1. Kesari Bhaat is a South Indian counterpart of the sheera made with the addition of saffron
2. Chocolate Sheera is a unique sheera made using cocoa powder and chopped dark chocolate
3. Mango Sheera made using fresh mango pulp
Dry fruit sheera
Dry fruit slivers are not only used as a garnish for Indian desserts but, they can form the base ingredient in cooking up an array of delightful sheera recipes. They give a rich texture and mouth-fell and are heavy on the stomach.
1. Badam ka Sheera is my most favorite sheera recipe made using blanched almonds
2. Akhrot Kaju Sheera combining a rich graininess from coarsely crushed walnuts and cashewnuts
3. Kaju Kopra Sheera can be packed and carried in the tiffin.
4. Almond Sheera
You can even layer these sheeras to make a lip-smacking Layered Sheera which is a treat for the palette. It will surely garner you many praises from the guests if served at a party or get together.
