One of the best ways of utilizing those over ripe bananas is by making a fragrant Banana Sheera or Kela sheera. The aroma of the banana combined with ghee/clarified butter makes this sheera a one of its kind. It needs no additional condiments like Cardamom or saffron to enhance its taste.
- 200 gms Rava/Semolina
- 200 gms sugar
- 2 elaichi Bananas
- 600 ml milk
- 100 ml water
- 100 gms ghee/ clarified butter
- A handful of Cashew nuts and Kishmish
Roast the Rava in 5 tbsps of ghee till it turns to a golden brown and gives its aroma. Roast the cashews and kishmish in a little ghee to a golden brown. Boil the milk and water together and pour it into the roasted rava. Cook till done. Slice the banana finely and add it to the Sheera. Keep roasting till the bananas get mashed. Add the sugar and keep stirring till it starts leaving the sides of the pan. Add the remaining ghee and the roasted Cashew and raisins. Mix well. Serve hot.
