Richness oozes out of very spoonful of this divine mithai. With the creamy taste of not just coconut but coconut milk too, the Coconut Sheera has a good dose of semolina and crumbled mawa for added volume, and a dash of nuts for an exciting crunch.

Sweetened aptly with sugar and flavoured by classic Indian spices, this sheera is perfect for any special occasion .
