Besan ka Sheera is a semi thick dessert which is used as a home remedy for cold and cough


Units Scale
  • Besan/ Gram Flour: 5 Tbsp.
  • Milk: 1.5 cup (250 ml)
  • Water: 1/2 cup
  • Ghee/ Clarified Butter: 2 Tbsp.
  • Green Cardamom: 3-4
  • Sugar: 3 Tbsp (I have used Powdered Sugar)


  1. [url href=""][/url]
  2. Deseed Green Cardamoms and make a powder of the cardamom seed.
  3. Dry roast Besan in a non-stick pan for 5 minutes in low flame until the Besan changes the color to golden brown and emits a nutty aroma.
  4. Now add the Ghee to the Besan and mix it thoroughly and cook for one more minute in low flame.
  5. Start adding milk to the fried Besan slowly and mix vigorously so that no lumps formed by the Besan.
  6. Keep the flame on the lower side.
  7. Add entire Milk and if required add a little water in case found the mixture less runny.
  8. Now add Sugar and Cardamom Powder to the mixture and keep cooking on low flame until the mixture thickens a bit (less thickened than Halwa).
  9. Switch the flame off and serve the Besan ka Sheera hot.


Instead of Powdered Sugar, normal Sugar can also be used.
I have not added dry fruits which are optional.
I prefer to use homemade Ghee for this recipe.
