Mango Kesari

Mango kesari / Mango sheera / Mango halwa is a dessert made with Semolina, sugar, mango and

 nuts. This is a simple yet delicious sweet made in just few minutes. I have used store bought mango

 pulp in the recipe, if you find fresh ripe mangoes go ahead and use them too. Sugar and mango  can

 be adjusted as per your taste and preferences.
