Sin-A-Mon Tales

A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent

Besan Ka Seera

If there is one food which is the food that I associate to mum’s warm cooking in Delhi Chilly winters, a dish that would have had sitting in a cosy rajai in the night and than slowly drifting to sleep after reading a book its besan ka seera. And according to my mum its very healing for cold (and indeed it is, mum’s are always right aren’t they?) and I remember how as kids we would get happy for a cold because that would mean getting besan ka seera… sigh and now when I am writing this post I am craving for it yet again. I think post finishing this post I will go and make some for myself

besan ka seera

What I used

  • Besan – 1 cup
  • Sugar – 3/4 cup
  • Ghee – 1/2 cup
  • Cardamom powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Milk – 1.5 cup (I like my seera a little liquidy make it one cup if u dont)

How I made it

  • Heat ghee in a pan and add the besan to it. Roast till it changes color and leaves a nice aroma
  • Add cardamom powder to it and add cold milk constantly stirring it so that no lumps are formed
  • Add sugar and boil for 4-5 minutes and eat it really hot

I love it hope you do too
