Wheat flour halwa..




Hello everyone! This week I have a reason to be happy as my page rank went up to 2 and now since this is valentine day so why not make something sweet.

It is very easy to make and I am sure most of you have already tried that. Its wheat flour sheera or halwa as you may like to call. I usually make this for breakfast but it can be eaten anytime.


Ingredients: 

3tbsp ghee

1cup wheat flour

1/2cup sugar

Few strands of saffron

1tpsp khus khus /poppy seeds (optional)

For garnish pieces of almonds &/or  pistachios

Water 1 cup


Method:

Heat ghee in pan and add wheat flour. Keep  stirring it till it becomes dark brown but be careful not to burn the flour. If its too dry add one tbsp more of ghee.  Reduce heat and add water while stirring it continuously so no lumps are formed.  All the water would be soaked and flour would be cooked and then add sugar. Sugar would also leave some water so keep stirring it till sugar dissolves. Add khus khus here.

Take it off heat and add saffron and garnish with almonds and pistachios..

Your sweet sheera is ready in instant. 

Be careful with browning part of flour as when you add sugar then also color changes a little.

Serve hot.

P.s. I have made my own adjustments in this so try it your way with the adjustments you are ok with. Khus khus is optional but I use it for bit of crunchy feeling. I am sorry about picture quality as it seems something went wrong with my camera.

  14. Hi Meena . M again late fr comment. I tkh u knw why!!!!!!!!!
    Wish u Belated Valentine Day (dnt knw u cn wish ths way) hahahaha.
    Waise bhi agar dosti mein pyaar hai toh har din Valentine day hai hahahaahah.
    Hm Halwa , my fav sweet dish, I m nt a sweet lover bt like ths Halwa, easy n fast to make.
    I cn c ur lv fr khus khus n saffron, u add it in every dish of urs. Yep, v dnt use bth as u already mentioned its optional.
    For m info abt ur halwa color , whn v make HALWA its brown in color , bt ur pics shows the halwa in green, is it bcoz u used saffron, or is it due to poor picture quality n camera prblm.
