Mango Sheera


  • Sooji/Rava - 1/2 cup
  • Sugar- 1/2 cup
  • 1 medium ripen Mango
  • Whole Milk - 3/4 cup
  • Water - 3/4 cup
  • Few Saffron strands
  • Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
  • 6 - 8 Almond sliced
  •  8 -10 Raisins 
  • Ghee 3 - 4 tbsp


  • Cut mango into pieces, keep aside few cubes for garnishing the sheera later. Grind the remaining to a smooth puree and keep it aside.It should yield 1/2 cup approximately.
  • Warm 1 tbsp of milk and add saffron(crush the saffron slightly before adding) to it and keep it aside for 10 mins.
  • Heat 2 tbsp ghee in a kadai/pan and add sliced almonds and fry until they turn light brown in color, remove and keep aside. 
  • In the same pan add raisins and fry them until they bulge up, remove and keep them aside.
  • Now in the same pan add rava and fry until the rava becomes aromatic and very light brown in color. 
  • Meanwhile boil water with sugar in another pan until the sugar dissolve.
  • Add the boiling water to the roasted rava mixture by mixing it simultaneously and cover it and cook for 2-3 mins until the rava absorbs the water.
  • Add the milk and mix again and cook for a minute. Rava would absorb all the liquid and becomes slightly dry now.
  • Now add the ground mango puree to it and mix well and cook for a minute.
  • Lastly add cardamom powder, saffron milk mixture, roasted sliced almonds and raisins, 2-3 tbsp ghee and mix well. 
  • Cover it and let it cook for 2 mins Switch off the flame and cover it for 5 mins.
  • Garnish with sliced almonds & with mango cubes.
