Mango Kesari Recipe - Mango Sheera Recipe

Sheera or Sooji halwa is a great indian sweet made during vratham days or any special occasion. I made this last week to offer sai baba. It is a rich, clean sweet made with semolina, i added some mangoes since they are in season right now. Everyone in the family loves it. You can make it in under 20 mins or so.

I loved this kesari more than my plain ones, since the mango flavor is perfect in this and made this halwa really tasty.

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 5 mins
Cooking Time : 20 mins
Serves: 3 to 4


Sooji / Rava / Semolina - 1/2 cup

Sugar - 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup
Water - 1 cup
Ghee - 1/3 cup
Ripe Mangoes - 2 peeled and cubed
Cashews  - 10


Take mangoes and sugar in a blender and puree smooth.

Heat ghee in a kadai, add in cashews and fry till golden. Now add in sooji and roast it on low heat for 3 to 4 mins till it starts to smell good. 

Once it is roasted, add in water and mix well. Cook till it thickens. 

Now add in mango puree and mix well.

Cook for few mins, it should be little runny or little semi liquid. Once it is at that stage, turn off the heat and let it cool down.

Scoop and serve.
