On fasting days we make use of shingara flour. Here is a recipe of sheera made with it.

Ingredients:
Shingara flour ..... 1/2 cup
Green cardamoms..2-3
Ghee .................... 1 tbsp. (if you take melted take 1 and 1/2)
Sugar ..................2-3 tbsp. (according to your taste)
Pistachios ..... to garnish (crushed)

Method:
1. In a pan heat the ghee and add the crushed cardamoms.

2.When you get the aroma add the flour and keep stirring on medium flame until it gets a nice brown colour.

3. Add one cup water and stir quickly to avoid lumps.

4. Now add the sugar and mix well. Keep mixing for half a minute till the consistency is thick.
Garnish with pistachios.
