Rajgara Seero with salt taste or Farali Seero

This is my contribution for Celebrations for Ganesha Chaturthi – Event. This event announced by Latha Narasimhan….the basic purpose of this event is…. festivals are not really so much for feasting and indulgence but more for socializing and devoting time to celebrate our culture. And how can there not be an online community celebration of the birthday of a God who has such a powerful and universal appeal? Ganesha - the elephant headed god with all his various forms and distinctive iconography will surely be delighted.
This is the first time, I combined sweet with salt andit turned out very nice. If you will try this thenYou will always sayThat sweet and salt taste together feels like heaven.I get this idea from one of my favorite biscuit"Little Hearts".

1-cup Rajgara flour
1-cup sugar
1\2-cup ghee
One small piece dry coconut
3-cub cheese

1\2-cup mava
Dryfruits (Cashew nuts and rasins)

Rajgara flour is easily available in Indian grocery store.

Method: Step 1: Grate dry coconut, cottage cheese and Mava(in hindi it is Khoya,in english it is calledcondensed milk) Step 2: Heat the 2-cup water in another vessel and keep aside.
Step 3: Heat the ghee in heavy bottomed pan. Add the rajagara flour.

Step 4: Cook over low flame and stir continuously.

Step 5: Cook till flour color turns into golden brown. Approximately 10-15 minutes.

Step 6: In low flame add grated cheese in it and mix well.

Step 6: Turn off the flame and add grated mava in it. While mixing , if ghee appears on top of the flourthen consider that flour is roasted nicely.

Step 7: After that add hot water in low flame.

Step 8: Add the sugar in above mixture.

Step 9: Let it simmer for another 10-15 minutes. Also add clean and washed rasins in it.

Step 10: When all the water is absorbed remove from the heat.

Step 11: Place it in another bowl and add half of the grated coconut in it.

Step 12: Decorate with cashew nuts and another half of the grated coconut.
Serve hot……

Foodie said...

Kajal wonderful recipes as usual. I am kind of curious to know what kind of cheese you have put in the Rajgira sheera. Is it the Amul cube cheese or something else. Could you please let me know. Email me so I can see it.
I would love to make this for my kids as they would love anything with cheese in it. Loved your patra recipe too and the choli shaak too.
