Sheera– is a traditional Maharashtrian sweet, usually served as ‘Prasad’ for Satyanarayan puja. Sheera also is an all time favourite breakfast for many Maharashtrians.
If you have unexpected guests and have not time to cook up any other sweet, Sheera is a very good way of showing them you care! 🙂 And Sheera never lets you down… it always turns out good….
I am back after a short refreshing weekend trip to Pune – a much needed break from our hectic schedules.
I have just realized that February is already over (only 28 days !) and March 1 is already here and that’s the date for JFI –Potato hosted by Vaishali.

I like to include different dals like Toovar,Moong, Masoor.. sometimes even Urad alternately in my day-today meals. One of my favourite dals is Masoor dal (Red lentils). This beautiful looking orange red dal is commonly used in North Indian cuisine. You can make out masoor dal being cooked in any household. It gives out a typical rich aroma..unique only to Masoor dal. This dal is easier to cook than the other dals. Soak it for ½ an hour and it gets cooked within 10-15 minutes.Masoor dal cooked in combination with tomatoes increases its flavour and is absolutely irresistible….
