firstly, in a pan add 2 tbsp ghee and roast 7 cashew, 2 tbsp raisins on low flame.
once it turns golden brown, keep aside.
in the remaining ghee add ½ cup rava and roast for 5 minutes on low flame. keep aside.
in a large kadai get 1½ cup water to a rolling boil.
add roasted rava slowly, stirring continuously.
the rava will absorb all the water and turns a lump-free mixture.
now add ½ cup sugar and continue to stir.
sugar dissolves completely and gets absorbed by rava.
further add ¼ cup ghee and 3 drops yellow food colour. adding food colour is completely optional.
now mix well making sure everything is well combined.
cover and simmer for 5 minutes making sure rava is cooked completely.
further add roasted cashew, raisins and ½ tsp cardamom powder.
mix well making sure everything is well combined.
finally, enjoy sheera with khara bath or serve as prasada.
