It is hard to imagine Indian sweets without sugar but this sheera shows you that the possibility is real!

This yummy Jowar Apple Sheera has an amazingly satiating taste, with the natural sweetness of apple, honey and raisins.

Although it might not be as sweet as the normal sheeras, its pleasant taste is sure to go down well with everybody – especially those who are on the lookout for healthy alternatives.

Cow’s milk adds to the health quotient of this sweet, while also giving it a rich taste, which is accentuated by a dash of cinnamon.

Overall, the taste and mouth-feel of this sweet are very pleasing. At steps 2 and 3, the mixture will be very lumpy but keep stirring. As you add the apples at step 4 and continue stirring, the lumps will disappear.

Apple and raising both give enough sweetness to this sheera. Serving it warm is very important...
