Sheera or halawa can be made as dessert or snacks for kids. I have grown in a family where sheera is served as breakfast with goodness of ghee and milk. We used to eat sheera as breakfast and not as dessert. sheera is served as healthy food and its been said that the goodness of ghee makes it very light to digest ,it gives instant energy because of milk and sugar and wheat flour gives feeling of satisfaction after eating.
My mo used to make atta sheera ,rawa/semolina sheera ,almond sheera and narayan sheera for us. Sheera is good food for baby and toddlers as well. I often make sheera for my kids as snacks.I have decided to post all these traditional and nutritious sheera recipes for all types on hellomomy.This sheera is made from wheat flour.
