How to make authentic Indian Sheera

Sooji Semolina Sweet

Semolina is very commonly used in Indian cooking and here we make a sweet dessert called sheera often served during breakfast too. Made with semolina, sugar, milk, nuts and sometimes desiccated coconut too. Ghee and rose water give this that very authentic flavor so don't skip those out. The gel food color is just for presentation so feel free to leave that out.
