Gulkhand Rava Sheera/Gulkhand Sooji Ka Halwa

I have couple of posts sitting in my draft and seriously i want to clear some as soon as possible coz my hard disc is getting tired of having all those pictures. Nowadays am getting very busy and obviously am so lazy to cook and click, thank god to all these posts sitting in my drafts. One among those posts is this Gulkhand Rava sheera, sheera is nothing our own Kesari. You can dish out kesari within few minutes and this dessert go usually for easy cooking. Semolina, sugar, ghee and nuts is quite enough to whip out this lipsmacking rava sheera, some add fruits while others add saffron or food colour to give an attractive colour to this simple dessert.

Gulkhand Rava Sheera

My today's post is quite a different one from usual sheera aka kesari,yes my version of Sooji ka halwa goes for gulkhand. This rose flavoured sheera smells awesome and completely an aromatic dessert,one can relish this lipsmacking sheera when served both warm or chilled. Rose essence, gulkhand added to the usual rava sheera makes this beautiful dessert. Am running my second week of blogging marathon with Desserts as theme, obviously this sheera goes to this week's theme.
