Rawa kesari or Sheera as we often call in South India makes a good winter treat. Today, I have a fusion sweet, sheera with kiwi in it. A bowl of piping hot kiwi kesari  was one of the favourites of my daughter a few years back.

Now, here’s the recipe for Kiwi Kesari

1 cup semolina
1/2 cup  ghee
2 kiwi

Method:
1 Peel the skin of kiwi, cut into big chunks and make pulp of it. Keep it aside.
2 Take a pan, add a spoon of ghee and roast the semolina along with the dry fruits. It should be golden in colour.
