coconut sheera | coconut rava sheera | nariyal sheera | coconut sheera with mava | with 15 amazing images.

Richness oozes out of very spoonful of this divine coconut rava sheera mithai. With the creamy taste of not just coconut but coconut milk too, the coconut sheera has a good dose of semolina and crumbled mawa for added volume, and a dash of nuts for an exciting crunch.

coconut sheera is made by sautéing rava on a tava, then adding coconut, almonds, raisins, sugar and coconut milk which is then cooked on a medium flame for 7 to 8 minutes. To that we add some cardamom powder and mava which is then cooked for 2 minutes to make the rich nariyal sheera.

Sweetened aptly with sugar and flavoured by classic Indian spices, this coconut sheera with mava is perfect for any special occasion.

I would like to share some important tips to make the perfect coconut rava sheera. 1. Sauté rava on a medium flame for 7 minutes or till it turns light brown in colour and aromatic.Stir occasionally so the rava does not stick to the bottom of the pan. Also, it helps in cooking evenly and not just browning. 2. You can add other dry fruits like cashew nuts, pistachios can also be added for crunch to nariyal sheera.
