Sheera is a very famous dessert in most parts of India. In north India it is called Sooji ka Halwa and in western and southern India it is called Sheera.

Sheera is also offered as prasad or offering to Gods during auspicious occasions and festivals.

This dish is very easy to prepare. It can be cooked in a jiffy. In Europe and USA, sheera is served as semolina pudding. Sheera with pooris is a very popular option for breakfast or snacks.

I have always loved sheera even though I don’t have a sweet tooth. I prefer it during auspicous ceremonies, as one does not eat onions, garlic or rice. It is a very filling dish as well.

Now, let us see how to prepare this mouth watering sheera or sooji ka halwa.

Firstly, in a bowl take fine semolina (chiroti rava/sooji).

Take sugar (shakkar) in a bowl. The amount of sugar (shakkar) will depend on your personal preference.

Now, take ghee (clarified butter) and saffron (kesar) food colour.

Take green cardamom (choti elaichi), cashew nuts (kaju) and raisins (kismis).

You will also need hot water (garam paani). Make sure the water is hot and not warm. Many people use milk (doodh) but using hot water (paani) surprisingly adds more flavour to the dish. It tastes similar to how hotels and sweet marts prepare it.

In a kadhai (wok), heat ghee (clarified butter).
