Sheera is often made as an offering/Prasad for auspicious occasions or poojas..In our home for any religious ceremony we mostly make sheera.At times if we crave to eat something sweet we make sheera as it is an easy and quick recipe,I always roast and store rava in fridge so it becomes much more easier.
Sheera is known as Suji halwa in northern part of India and Rawa Kesari in southern part…
It is also a favorite breakfast item,apart from this regular sheera you can make many varieties for eg pineapple sheera,Dry fruits sheera,Mango Sheera…
