Banana Sheera – Sweet Banana Pudding

Sweet banana sheera pudding
Sheera is a smooth pudding made of roasted semolina.  Banana sheera  is a common Prasad made during Satyanarayana  Pooja,   Janmashatami,  Lakshmi pooja,  Diwali or Navrathri.  It is an easy to make recipe and befits every occasion. This  a rich dessert authentically traditional and the flavor from the banana makes it all the more delectable.  The addition of banana  makes it sustaining for toddlers,  babies and adds some well needed nutrients. The sweetness of the banana also cuts the sugar quantity  in it.
I will not recommend this sheera recipe for the diet conscious as the amount of ghee cannot be compromised.  Reduced quantities of ghee makes the recipe quite dry.  Nevertheless  it’s a recipe to indulge on moderation.
Check out the detailed recipe and enjoy.  Don’t forget to check more yumminess on the blog befitting any festivals around.  Leaving some leads here so Don’t miss to check them out.
