Mango Sheera | Amba Sheera

As I write this recipe for Mango Sheera, I am smiling. Till recently, Sheera was very sacred and the only versions I would accept are plain Sheera, Rava Kesari and Sapata or Banana Sheera as made for Satyanarayana Pooja. However, having started this blog I am exploring other variations like Apple Sheera and Pineapple Kesari. 🙂

Yesterday, I was making Eggless Mango Cheesecake and I had some Mango Pulp left over. I decided on the spot to experiment and make some Mango Sheera. It turned out to be quite delicious and quite a hit with Mango-crazy family.

Mango Sheera  is essentially Suji ka Halwa flavoured with Mango Pulp. I love it because it combines two elements I love; Mango and Sheera
