                it for boiling in order to make the sugar syrup.
           4. Once the sugar dissolves in water while boiling, add 2 tblspn of milk.
           5. The milk added helps to scoop out the dirt layer forming over the sugar
                syrup. Remove the scum using a strain.
           6. Boil the mixture till we get one thread consistency sugar syrup.
           7. To check the one thread consistency of the syrup take some syrup a spoon,
                let it fall, tilt the spoon and see if you get thread falling from the spoon.
           8. Once the sugar syrup is ready, keep it aside.
           9. Take a non stick pan/kadhai, add the clarified butter,after it melts add
                the fine grounded moong dal.
          10. Keep stirring continuously, if required add some more ghee.

          12. Now slowly add the sugar syrup & cook for some time till the sugar syrup is 
                completely absorbed.
          13. Add the cardamom seeds or powder. 
          14. Garnish with dry fruits & serve hot.

  • Serves: Two- Three.

  • Notes:
          1. As you can see the sheera looks slightly dry, it's because I added less ghee.
