atta ka sheera recipe | Gujarati atta ka sheera | gehun nu sheera | whole wheat sheera | with 12 amazing images.

atta ka sheera recipe is a popular Gujarati sweet made from simple ingredients which are easily available in the Indian kitchen. In fact all you need is whole wheat flour, ghee, sugar, cardamom and almonds to garnish the Gujarati atta ka sheera. I consider whole wheat sheera one of the easiest Gujarati sweets to make.

To make atta ka sheera, heat ghee in a non-stick kadai. When the ghee melts, add whole wheat flour. Stir continuously so no lumps form and the flour cooks evenly. Sauté on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes or till it turns brown in colour and the ghee separates. After roasting for 5 to 7 minutes, the mixture will turn golden brown indicating wheat flour has cooked completely. Add sugar. Add cardamom powder to provide a nice fragrance to whole wheat sheera recipe. Add ¾ cup of water. Mix well till the wheat flour absorbs all the water. Cook on a low flame for another 2 to 3 minutes and our gehun nu sheera is ready.

Just note a few simple points, and success is assured to make the perfect atta ka sheera. 1. Do not compromise on the quantity of ghee else the atta halwa will become sticky and not yield the perfect taste and texture. 2. It is important to roast the gehun ka atta on a low flame very well otherwise, you may get raw taste if under roasted or burnt flavour if over roasted. 3. Add cardamom powder to provide a nice fragrance to whole wheat sheera recipe.

Gujarati atta ka sheera is a quick dessert and requires far less effort as compared to Moong Dal Sheera and Badam ka Sheera.

If you have a very sweet tooth, you can add two more tablespoons of sugar. Also remember to serve this Gujarati atta ka sheera immediately to avoid lumps.

How to make atta ka sheera

  2. To make atte ka halwa, heat ghee in a non-stick kadai. Do not compromise on the quantity of ghee else the atta halwa will become sticky and not yield the perfect taste and texture. Ideally, a thick bottomed kadai works best for roasting and cooking authentic Indian mithai.
  3. When the ghee melts, add whole wheat flour.

  7. Add sugar. Add more or less sugar as per the sweetness your prefer in atte ka halwa. You can also make use of jaggery powder if you like.
  8. Add cardamom powder to provide a nice fragrance to wheat halwa recipe. You can also toss in some roasted dried fruits like almonds, cashews, raisins to give atte ka sheera a rich and crunchy mouthfeel.
  9. Add ¾ cup of water. Be careful as the mixture will splutter and be quick at this stage or else the atta halwa will become lumpy. If you are not confident, switch off the flame, add water and give a quick whisk & then continue cooking the wheat flour halwa.
  10. Mix well till the wheat flour absorbs all the water. Many people even prepare a sugar syrup and add that to the halwa instead of adding sugar, water and cardamom powder separately.
