A delicious Indian sweet dish

This article was written by Computing student Chaitali

This is a delicious Indian sweet dish and is often enjoyed during the brief mango season from April until June. Srinivaspur in Kolar is nicknamed the Mango City of India, over 63 species of mangoes are found here. I like this recipe because mango is my favourite fruit. My village is in Konkan, India where we call mangos 'hapus'. When I was younger, I used to go to my village, climb the trees and eat mangos off the tree immediately. I was quite excited to try new dishes with my favourite fruit, so I tried Mango Sheera during my stay in the UK and it reminded me of all my childhood memories. The best part is it can be made within 30 minutes and with few ingredients, so it is affordable. 

Mango Sheera recipe

Time: 30 minutes

For roasting:

  • 1 tbsp ghee/clarified butter
  • 7-8 cashews or almonds
  • ½ cup rava / semolina / suji (fine)
  • Half cup mango puree
  • Half cup diced mango

Other ingredients:

  • 1½ cups hot water
  • ¼ or ½ cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp ghee / clarified butter
  • ½ tsp cardamom powder

From my experience, the taste was mouth-watering. I would suggest you try out this delicious recipe. You won't feel homesick after cooking your favourite dish by yourself. When I prepared Mango Sheera, I took pictures of it and shared them with my family and friends. They were so happy that I can cook my favourite Indian sweet dish in the UK as well. I really enjoyed cooking and eating it.

I hope you also have enjoyed this recipe. If you have any questions about your course or being an international student studying in the UK, you can contact me through ask a student.
