Happy New Year to all my readers! Hope everyone had a wonderful start. To celebrate this new year, with a sweet I prepared Sheera.

In this Sheera preparation, I used semolina/rava/sooji along with milk and ghee (clarified butter). It is a special sweet dish made for many occasions in India and is a delicious pudding to serve after any meal.

This is a quick and easy sweet recipe you can prepare within 20 minutes if you are craving for any sweet or if you have sudden guests.

Note:

Here you can use milk only instead of water. Sweetness is perfect for me if you like you can add a little bit more.

You can serve it as cold or warm. But I prefer warm.
