  1. I think this is what we could call cream of wheat, except ours is not so firm, more like oat porridge when cooked. It is indeed a lovely breakfast. I love the flavors and addition of the raisins and nuts!

  2. My favourite breakfast Sheera and coffee!

  3. Yummy, kesari sheera and khara bhath.. best ever combination for a satisfying and filling breakfast. Your kesari semolina sheera looks so good.
