Rava banana sheera or kesari recipe - Today it is Ghatasthapna. On this auspicious day I would like to post a very delicious sweet dish recipe which is commonly made in all parts of India. Rava banana sheera is a very essential naivedya dish prepared during Satyanarayana Pooja and Durga Pooja. It is also called Mahaprasaad. If it is for naivedya, ghee, sugar and rava is used in equal quantity. But keeping health point in mind, I have used less ghee in this recipe and added milk to increase the taste. However, you can increase the ghee quantity in this dish. I have also used less sugar as the banana adds an extra sweet to the sheera. I also make pineapple rava sheera, and I'll post that too in due course. Whenever I buy banana, I reserve a banana to make this kesari.
Cooking time - 15 minutes
1 cup rava / semolina, thick variety
1 banana, peeled, chopped
3 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
4 cardamoms, powdered
2 tbsp ghee
