  • 1 cup coarse wheat flour
  • 1 cup jaggery or sugar
  • 1 cup melted ghee
  • 2 cup water
  • 4-5 almond slits
  • 4-5 cashew slits
  • ¼ tsp cardamom powder


  • Method
  • Boil 2 cup water in a small pan. Then add jaggery and cook till jaggery is completely melted.
  • Now, in another pan add ghee and chopped dry fruits. Roast it slightly and keep it aside.
  • Now, in a pan add 1 cup melted ghee and add 1 cup wheat flour.
  • Keep stirring and roasting till it gets a slight brown color. After 5-7 minutes you will get the nice toasty aroma of wheat and ghee separates from it.
  • Now add warm water and jaggery mixture slowly. Cook with stirring continuously till water is absorbed. This will be done very quickly.
  • Cook till it gets thick.
  • Then add cardamom powder and roasted dry fruits in it. Mix well.
  • Ghee will start to ooze out and sheera starts to leave the sides of the pan. Then turn off the stove heat.


  • Use coarse wheat flour for sheera.
  • Instead of coarse wheat flour, you can use a combination of plain wheat flour and fine rava.
  • The proportion of flour, ghee, and gud should be equal.
  • Add hot jaggery and water syrup into sheera mixture.
