Few days back along with my foodie friends,I had visited a famous thali restaurant in pune,there I had tasted this dish for the very first time….and simply loved it…was pending for a very long time on my to do list….so finally tried it today and turned out yummy.. .
Here goes the recipe for simple yet delicious strawberry sheera.
1 Cup rava(roasted in 3 tbsp ghee)
3/4th Cup Sugar.
1/2 Cup Water (hot)
1/2 Cup Milk (hot)
2 tbsp ghee.
A Pinch of salt.
Some broken Cashew Nuts.
3 tbsp Whole Strawberry Crush.
Heat Ghee in a kadhai.Add rava and roast till it changes colour( turns into light brown) stiring continuously.
Rava can be roasted in advance and stored in refrigerator.
Add cashewnuts & salt.
Pour boiling hot water on rava.
Stir.After the water is completely absorbed in rava add boiling hot milk,mix well.
Once all the liquid is absorbed, add sugar,mix well,cover and cook till sugar melts completely.
Add strawberry crush and mix well, cook till mixture starts leaving the pan.
Remove in a serving dish,garnish with fresh strawberry and serve immediately.
TIP:Fresh strawberry can also be used instead of pulp,in that case add 3 tbsp more sugar to balance the sour taste of strawberry.
Happy Cooking !!!
