Banana Sheera is a tasty dessert made from semolina,sugar,milk and banana.South Indians call it Kesari whereas in North it is called suji ka halwa. Normally I make kesari for various occasions for offering it to GOD.I have also seen here in Bangalore people making it for Satya Narayana Pooja. Whatever may be the occasion,it is a tasty desert that can be made in no time.One of my friends said she used to feed her infant with this Banana Sheera and as it is quite easy to swallow and soft.Here in Karnataka this is called Kesari Bath and is usually served with Uppittu or Rava Khichidi.Together the combo is called chow chow bath.
I made this yesterday for Navarathri and served it to guests after offering.I have used robusta banana,but you can use any banana variety like elachi. Turning back to the name,sheera means halwa in marathi and is also popular delicacy there.As we all know Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated with much pomp an gaiety and people make this as offering.The tasty dessert turned out to be super hit as all at home enjoyed it to the core.Check out my other kesari recipes like Chocolate Kesari,Pineapple Kesari and Fruit Kesari.
