Mango Sheera

Mango Kesari, also known as Mango Halwa or Mango Sheera, is an easy dessert made with ripe mangoes, semolina, cardamom, sugar, nuts, and raisins. A few days ago, we shared a recipe of sooji ka halwa, and it made me crave this yummy recipe. I mean, it has mango, and how can anything go wrong with mangoes? A Perfect dessert for any festival and can also be indulged as an evening snack. 

Ingredients:

  1. 1 tsp coconut oil
  2. 2 tbsp chopped almonds
  3. 1/2 cup fine semolina flour
  4. 1/2 cup boiling water
  5. 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
  6. 1/4 tsp salt
  7. 1 tbsp sugar
  8. 1 cup ripe mango puree or mango pulp from the market
  9. 5-7 saffron strands

Directions:

Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the nuts and saute until they get golden for 2-3 mins.

Add the semolina, mix, and roast until fragrant. Stir occasionally to avoid burning—3 to 6 mins.

Meanwhile, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Add saffron or cardamom to the water if using.

Reduce the heat of the semolina pan to low. Add salt, nutritional yeast, sugar, 1/2 cup boiling water, and mango puree. Whisk well and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. 

If you use a coarse semolina (rava) or want a thinner consistency of the pudding, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup more boiling water while adding the mango puree. 

Carefully taste and adjust sweetness. You can also mix in some chopped ripe mango at this point.

Turn off the heat. Garnish with chopped nuts and serve warm or chill according to your liking.
