Sheera till date happens to be my most favourite sweet. Amma makes sheera using slightly big rava than the normal Semolina and it tastes great. When I was in my sixth std one sunday afternoon I told amma that I wanted to eat sheera. Amma was a working woman and sunday afternoon was the only time she used to get some rest. So she said she will make it for me some other time and also that there was no sufficient sugar at home to make a sweet. But I was not convinced and told her that I would make sheera not only for me but for the whole family. I mentally took note of the recipe that she told me and went ahead to kitchen emerging out every now and then to ask her where the ingredients were. After some time she came in to the Kitchen to check as to what I was doing, she was horrified to see the amount of sheera I had done. She said it was impossible to come up with so much amount with the measures she had given me. Only then did I realise that she mentioned small cup and I used a bigger one and not only that I had also added less sugar than required and ended up making lot of sheera that did not taste like one due to the lack of sugar. Then she came to my rescue, sent my brother to shop to get extra sugar (I used up all the sugar!!!) and some how made it taste like sheera. The sheera was eaten not only by my family but also by all my uncles and cousin's who stayed quite close to our house ;) After that till the time I got married I have never attempted making sheera!!!
Even now I feel that I cannot come up with decent sheera. I know it is one of the easiest sweet to make yet I am not satisfied the way I make it.. Practice I guess!!!
