Goda Sheera

Whenever I made fresh Ghee at home , I cannot stop myself from making Goda Sheera , just because it requires a lot of ghee. My mom makes the best sheera. Soft yet not mushy. I have been following her recipe and it has never failed.

Here is what you need-
1 cup Course Sooji/ Rava
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup Ghee , melted
1.5 cup Milk
1 Cup Water
A few Saffron strands
1 tsp Cardamom
A pinch of Nutmeg
A pinch of Salt

1. In a heavy bottom vessel , heat ghee and add the rava.
2. Roast on  medium high for 2 mins and then reduce the heat to low.
3. Roast the rava for about 15 mins or until you can smell roasted rava ( You might not get the smell, ask others in the house if they can smell it )
4. Set aside
5. Boil water and milk together,
6. Put the roasted rava back on the flame and add saffron , cardamom and nutmeg. mix well.
7. Add the hot milk + water mixture. Carefully mix , the mixture will froth after you add the liquid. . Keep mixing or else you may have a few lumps.
8. Once the mixture has absorbed all the liquid , add the sugar .Mix until the sugar dissolves. The sheera will look a bit liquidy. Add some chopped nuts if you wish
9. Cover the vessel and cook on low flame for a good 10-12 mins , mixing the sheera after a few intervals to avoid sticking to the bottom.
10. Now the sheera is ready to enjoy.
