Vasant Panchami is also called as Shree panchami as it is celebrated in honour of goddess Saraswathi the goddess of learning and knowledge. This falls on the 5th day of Magh Shukla according to the Hindu lunar calendar. Goddess saraswathi is believed to have been born on this day and we offer our prayers to her to remove the darkness from our life. It is also seen as the end of winter and beginning of spring and hence also called as Basant Panchami.

People are seen wearing yellow garments to mark this occasion. They say that since during this time, across north India, the mustard fields are flowering with their golden yellow flowers giving it a yellow carpet look and hence yellow are the colour of the day. People offer different sweets to the goddess on this day and one such is sheera or rava kesari

Steps

1
Done

Heat 1 tbsp ghee in a pan and fry the cashew till it becomes golden brown, take them out in a plate and keep aside.

2
Done

Add the rest of the ghee to the same pan and add the rava and roast it till it starts to become golden brown. Here all the ghee is absorbed by the rava

3
Done

Now add the hot water and stir well as it tends to become lumpy at this stage

4
Done

Once all the water is absorbed, add the sugar to this and mix well. I prefer to use a whisk so that the lumps aren’t formed. You will observe that the mixture starts to become a little watery.

5
Done

Now add the yellow colour, cardamom powder and saffron strands soaked in milk, mix well and let it simmer till it starts to thicken up. After 3-4 minutes, it would have reached the required consistency. Switch off the stove

6
Done

Add the fried nuts to the prepared sheera , mix well and offer it to the goddess and then serve to others.
