Instructions
 

  • Grease a flat pan with ghee and set aside. In a deep pan, heat the 1/2 cup of ghee. Add the raisins and fry till they plump up. Add the semolina and fry on low flame till it is aromatic and turns light brown. Do not let it brown too much.

  • Meanwhile, keep the water for boiling. When the semolina is roasted, add the water and cook on low heat till it is well cooked. The water will be fully absorbed by the semolina. Add the mango puree and mix well.
  • Pour in the sugar and mix continuously till the sugar melts and the whole mixture is lump free. Keep stirring well to avoid lumps. To this, add the soaked saffron and mix again.

  • Add about 2 tablespoons ghee and mix again. Keep stirring till it the halwa or sheera is fully cooked and starts to leave the sides of the pan.
  • Immediately, pour this mixture into the greased pan and level the top of the sheera with the bottom of a bowl, greased with ghee. Garnish with the almonds and slightly press into the sheera. Cut into desired shapes and serve warm or cold.

Notes

  • The amount of mango pulp and ghee can be adjusted to your liking.  I like this subtle flavor of mango so added only half a cup.
  • If the mango pulp is too sweet, reduce the amount of sugar to 1/2 cup.
  • If you like, you can add crushed cardamom to the sheera for the traditional flavor.
  • You can serve this sheera or pudding as such, without setting it in a pan.
