You would have tasted sheeras made out of various flours or semolina. Here is a unique sheera made with walnuts! It has a fantastic texture and interesting flavour that is worth savouring. Just place a spoonful of the Walnut Sheera on your palate and keep it there for a few seconds to enjoy the special taste.

However, take care not to have more than 1 to 2 tbsp a day, as this is quite a rich treat despite the low amounts of ghee and sugar used in the recipe. Even this quantity is enough to do wonders for you, as walnuts are rich in Omega 3 Fatty Acids, which help in the overall development of the baby, especially in the early months of pregnancy. It also abounds in the antioxidant vitamin E, which helps the body to get rid of harmful free radicals.

This is one of the best tasting halwas I have had and super simple as well.... just a little doubt, can I store and refrigerate this? If yes, how many days? Please inform.

Loved this sweet... The walnuts are not too powdered and just enough coarse to give a good crunch and mouth feel. The quantity of sugar is perfect and of course the cardamom powder shouldn''t be missed out on as it is a taste enhancer.
