Rice Sheera

This is my Dad's favourite! Anytime, anywhere and how-much-ever, he just loves this. At home, my mother usually makes this during the Navaratri season and it is indeed a very delicious sweet. You can use Basmati Rice or even the Raw rice for this dish. I have used, Broken Matta rice. I have pressure cooked it and all that is required is to just add the sugar and Ghee. Its ready!


Rice- 1/2 cup
Sugar- 1 cup
Ghee- 3/4 cup
Cardamom powder- A pinch
Cashew/Almonds/Raisins- Few
(Note: You may add a pinch of saffron for the flavor too)

Cook the Rice by adding a cup of water. Once cooked, add sugar and half the quantity of Ghee. The sugar will melt and let the mixture boil well for 20-25 minutes minutes. Meanwhile, keep stirring frequently. The mixture will thicken and start leaving the sides of the vessel. Add the rest of the Ghee and mix well. Serve hot with roasted nuts and raisins.

Preparation Time: 45 Minutes
Serves: 2 people
