Carrot Sheera – A Blissful and EASY Indian dessert with fine semolina and carrots that makes any occasion a celebration!

My mom’s signature recipe, this carrot sheera uses the basic traditional sheera recipe and gives it an healthy and aromatic twist.

Semolina, chickpea flour and whole wheat flour is slow roasted in homemade ghee until the flours turn golden brown and aromatic. Fresh grated carrots are then cooked in ghee to soft texture and they almost melt in this recipe. It is the addition of chickpea flour and whole wheat flour that  gives this dessert a creamy, melt in the mouth textures. We promise you will relish every spoonful of this heavenly dessert!
