Time taken: 45 minutes

Serves: 4 -6

Mango season is here and this was a to do recipe in my blog list and now has been a reality.   Whenever there is Mango season i prefer to prepare Mago sheera instead of the plain one.  I even prepare the Pineapple sheera which is also called Pineapple pudding which i have put up a couple of years ago on this blog and has been very well accepted by my viewers. There are a couple of other sheera recipes like the Sheera with caramalised sugar,  sapatha (sathyanarayana swami pooja prasad) and the normal sheera is also being put up a couple of years ago.    Here goes my version of Mango sheera…..

What you need to have:

1. Semolina – 1/2 Cup

2. Sugar – little more than 1/2 Cup

3. Alphanso Mango pulp – 3/4 Cup

4. Pure ghee – 3-4 Tablespoons

5. Water – 1 Cup(adjust more if needed)

6. Safron stands – A few

7. Cardamom powder – 1/2 Teaspoon

8. Raisins & Cashews – A fistful

9. Whole milk – 1/2 Cup (optional)DSCN0200                                                                                    Ingredients of Mango sheera DSCN0203

What you do with what you have:

1. Wash and peal Mango and cut it into pieces and pulse it in the mixie to make a puree. (keep a few pieces in tact.)DSCN0216                                                                                    Pealed Mango placed in the mixie bowlDSCN0219                                                                                       Mango pieces being pureed

6. In the mean while boil required quantity of water in a pan so that it can be instantly used to cook semolina.DSCN0215                                                                                            Water being boiled

7. Add boiled water to the roasted semolina and cook till all the water is absorbed and semolina is cooked.DSCN0221                                                                     Boiling water added to the roasted semolina

8. Add sugar to the cooked semolina and cook till it is absorbed completely and leaves the sides of the skillet. DSCN0226                                                                   Sugar being added to the cooked semolina

9. When done add saffron dissolved in milk to the cooked semolina and again cook for a couple of minutes till it leaves the sides of the skillet.DSCN0228                                                                     Saffron mixed milk being added to the cooked semolinaDSCN0230                                                                               Cooked semolina would look as below

10. Finally add mango puree,  2 teaspoons of pure ghee and cook for another couple of minutes  till done.  It will turn out to be a bit loose in consistency.DSCN0232                                                                      Mango puree being added to the semolina sugar mix

11. Lastly add reserved mango pieces, fried Raisins, Cashews, cardamom powder,  pure ghee  on low flame and cook for another 2 minutes and switch of the flame.DSCN0234                            Chopped mango pieces, Raisins, Cashews and pure ghee being added to the sheera

Time taken: 45 minutes

Serves : 4-6

Good to remember:  1. Roast semolina till you get a pleasant aroma, else sheera will not turn out delicious.

2. Add ghee in steps as needed.

3. Raisins and cashews also should be fried well.

4. One can  use half the quantity of water and the remaining milk to cook the dish.
