Sheera/ Sooji Halwa is traditional Indian sweet dish and very commonly served as prasad during puja or festivals. This is one sweet dish which can be easily prepared in short time and requires less ingredients.

Banana Sheera is generally offered as Prasad during puja or festive occasions. Addition of banana to traditional sheera makes this more yummier and tastier so next time when festive occasion approaches do make this sheera and let me know how it turned out 🙂
