Last week’s illness has left me feeling weak in my knees. I wanted to make something to revitalise me. Since it is winter and I had a packet of ground almonds lying in my pantry to be used since Diwali, I decided to make almond candies. By the time I got up and started, I changed my mind. Instead of making candies, I made a rich, wholesome sheera.
The aroma of ghee lingered in my house I started roasting the ground almonds. I could feel the energy filling me, getting me back to my normal life, my normal way of enjoying my kitchen chores…at last the new year had started with a sweet note in my kitchen I thought!!
For this I used a partially used pack of ground almonds(It had about 300g of ground almonds). Apart from this I used
1/2 cup ghee
3/4 cup warm milk
1 cup castor sugar(you may use more if you like more sweet taste)
Cardamom powder 1 tsp
In a pan, heat ghee on a medium flame. Add the ground almond. Roast the ground almonds in ghee. Have enough patience as it needs some time till it’s roasted and a lovely aroma fills your house. Add in the sugar and mix. Add the warm milk. Stir. Add in the cardamom powder and stir. Keep stirring the mixture on a medium flame. Make sure you keep stirring..cause nazar hati….. durghatna ghati..:) . The sheera will take it’s form and consistency in some time.
Serve it warm or cold. You may keep it packed in a container. It will last for a week. I did the same and am eating 1 tablespoon every morning and giving the same to everyone at home. So here’s to a healthy year!!!
