1 cup †††††††††††††† ravo (cream of wheat) or whole wheat flour
2 tablespoon †††† ghee (clarified butter)
ľ cup ††††††††††††† gol (jaggery or brown sugar), grated
3 cup †††††††††††††† warm water
1 tablespoon †††† draaksh (raisins)
ľ teaspoon ††††† elchi (cardamom seeds), slightly crushed
some †††††††††††††† saffron, mixed in a tablespoon of warm milk
some †††††††††††††† slivered almonds
ľ teaspoon ††††† sounth (powdered ginger)
Note: Use golden raisins for a sweet taste, dark ones for a slightly sour taste
Note: The whole wheat makes Saado Shiro more wholesome than Ravaa-no Shiro, and since itís cooked with water instead of milk, itís lighter.
Note: This is often served to new mothers, especially with the powdered ginger.
