Microwave Vegan Mango Kesari / Sheera | Vegan Mango Desserts

Vegan Mango Rava Kesari

The third vegan dessert that I am going to share is the Vegan Mango Kesari or Sheera.  I did not use any oil/vegan butter or margarine for this recipe, and I prepared this zero oil Kesari in the microwave. Once you have the mango puree ready, you can make this dish in 3 minutes and 15 seconds in the microwave. Yes, that’s the cooking time for this recipe. Dig in further to see the step by step recipe detail.

Mostly on Thursdays, I try to prepare some sweets/variety rice for Neivediyam/Offering. If I prepare rice dishes, then I make a sufficient quantity so that I can take it to the temple. I used to fast before, but with our back to back classes, it is becoming quite difficult these days. If I prepare sweets, I usually opt for the simple ones, and also I prefer lesser quantity when it comes to sweets. So microwave desserts are the best bet. I posted few microwave based desserts at IMC, and those are my regular go-to recipes.

Vegan Mango Rava Kesari

I always wanted to try kesari or sheera in the microwave and last week I decided to give it a try and never knew my very first attempt would be this successful. I did not take any pictures. As it can be prepared in less than 10 minutes, I tried again the very next day and captured the images, and here it is on my blog now. This quantity serves three people and also as it is with no oil, try to serve when it warm. If you are storing it overnight, add a little water or any non-dairy milk and microwave again for 30 to 35 seconds. I did not use any non-dairy milk for this recipe as well. If you are preparing this as a non-vegan version, you can always add milk and ghee. Fine Sooji works well for this recipe, and also I used only 2 tbsps of sugar. You substitute with nectars and make it a diabetic-friendly sweet too.        Vegan Mango Rava Kesari   

So here is the microwave version of the vegan mango sheera,

Ingredients:

  • Fine Semolina / Sooji / Rava – ½ cup
  • Water – ¾ cup
  • Mango Puree – ½ cup
  • Mango Essence – 1 drop (optional)
  • Cardamon Powder – ½ tsp
  • Sugar – 2 tbsps
  • Saffron Strands – a pinch
  • Nuts for garnishing

Steps:

  • In a safe microwave plate, spread the rava and microwave it for 30 seconds.

  • After 30 seconds, mix it well so that the rava doesn’t form into lumps.

  • Then in a microwave safe bowl, add the ¾ cup of water and microwave for 1 minute.

  • Carefully remove it from the microwave after a minute, and mix it once. Then add the Elaichi powder, saffron, mango essence and the mango puree.

  • Mix them all together and microwave for 30 seconds.

  • After 30 seconds, carefully remove it and mix it once. Then slowly add the rava. Make sure you are stirring while adding the rava.

  • Microwave this rava mix for 45 seconds.

  • Remove it from the microwave and stir it vigorously so that no lumps are formed.
  • Finally, add the two tbsps. of sugar and stir it again.

  • Microwave this sugar added rava mix for 30 seconds, and that’s it.

Mix it once. Serve this kesari warm topped with nuts or mango slices. I used my tart molds to get this shape. :-)

Notes:

  • The time varies depending upon the Microwave setting. So the time varies as per your settings. I would recommend always starting with 30 seconds of cooking and cook more if required.
  • The final mix might look semi-solid, but as it cools down the kesari thickens.
  • My mango puree was super sweet, so went with only 2 tbsps of sugar. Adjust according to your taste preference.
  • The mango essence is entirely optional.
  • If you want to prepare plain kesari, skip the mango puree and add 1 cup of water instead of a ¾ cup and add kesari powder and your favorite fruit essence for the color and flavor.
  • Or you can add ¼ cup of non-dairy milk like almond milk or cashew milk instead of mango puree.
  • Serve this kesari warm, if it’s cooled down, add a little water or any non-dairy milk and microwave again for 30 to 35 seconds before serving.
