Prasadach Sheera or Banana flavored semolina pudding

Nev's Kitchen - Prasadacha Sheera
 Prasadacha sheera, also know as Satyanarayanach prasad.Yummy & super quick to make, its Mr.N's favourite. 

Ingredients: Makes enough for 4 people 
(Adjust the quantities per your liking) 
  • 1 Cup Semolina 
  • 4-6 tbsp. Ghee or Clarified butter 
  • 1 Small ripe Banana 
  • 2 Cups Milk ( I use low fat) or use warm water 
  • 1 Cup Sugar 
  • 2-3 tsp. Cardamom powder 
  • Sliced almonds for garnishing & mixing 
Method:
  1. Melt the ghee in a medium sized pan, add the semolina & roast till it gets a nice pink color. Roast on medium heat. 
  2. Simultaneously boil the milk in a thick bottomed pot & take it off the heat once its boiled. 
  3. Peel & roughly slice the banana, add to the semolina & mix well. 
  4. Next add the milk & mix everything well. Very imp the  ilk or water is warm, if you use cold milk or water the semolina will go sticky & becomes hard. 
  5. Also add the cardamom powder & almonds at this stage. 
  6. its imp to add the cardamom powder later or it will loose its flavor if added to a hot mixture. 
  7. Cook till all the milk is absorbed by the semolina. 
  8. Then add the sugar & mix well again. The mixture will become runny, but it will solidify once the sugar is absorbed. 
  9. Cover & let the sheera cook for 5 mins, make sure all the steam is captured inside the lid. 
Turn off the heat & it can be served hot or cold, with some mango pickle. this is traditionally made during festivals as an offering to the Gods & the priests. 
Also served in small bowls to all your guests who visit you. Its the best prasad ever, and I remember looking forward to it when ever we would attend a function or satyanarayan puja.
