Who can resist a ladleful of sheera, even on a fasting day! Well, why not. Here is a lip-smacking Singhada Sheera that is perfectly acceptable on fasting days as well.

Roasting the water chestnut flour sufficiently, till it turns golden in colour, is very essential to bring out a rich aroma and do away with the raw smell of the flour. The use of ghee and the addition of cardamom powder give the sheera a very rich aroma, typical of most Indian sweets. Garnish generously with nuts, to add to the sumptuousness of this delightful dessert.
