BANANA SHEERA/SEMOLINA BANANA HALWA (DIABETIC FRIENDLY)
They say Bananas are Ganeshji’s favorite, apart from modaks of course.
And Banana sheera is imperative to Ganesh Chaturti as an offering to Lord Ganesh… So I am taking these 10 days as a way to showcase some drool-worthy Ganesh Chaturthi specific recipes starting off with this extremely easy banana sheera recipe.
A mix of roasted semolina, sugar, mashed bananas is all that you need to create this delicious halwa or sheera ( in Marathi) as you may call it. Add to it your choice of flavorings of course. For me, a little cardamom powder does wonder to elevate this prasad.
Also bananas and cardamom are a match made in heaven, never fails & keeping it diabetic-friendly, I have used Diabliss Sugar
Bananas – 2
Semolina -1/2 cup
Sugar Diabliss Sugar – 1/4 cup if you wish ( If the bananas are overripe, then you can avoid)
Cardamom powder – 1/2 tsp
Milk/water – 1.25cup( refer milk)
Ghee – 3 tbsp
Nuts few (cashews, raisins, walnuts)
In a deep pan, add 1 tbsp ghee and lightly roast the nuts (cashews, raisins, walnuts)
In the same pan add 2 tbsp ghee and roast the semolina for 4 to 5 minutes under low flame it slightly changes color.
In another bowl, let the milk/water come to a boil or microwave the milk until its hot.
Add in the hot milk/water and stir quickly before the semolina absorbs the milk.
Add in the mashed bananas and sugar, Mix well and add the cardamom powder, roasted nuts & Switch off the flame.
