Sheera Poli - Recipe with step by step pictures


To make 10 sheera poli approximately

Ingredients

For Dough / Outer Cover

Wheat flour - 2 cups
Oil - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste

For Sheera / Sooji halwa stuffing

Sooji / rava / semolina - 1 cup
Milk - 3 cups
Ghee / Clarified butter - 1/4 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp

Procedure

Making of Dough / Outer Cover


  • Add oil and salt in a wheat flour. Mix well and remove all the lumps. Now start kneading the dough by adding little water at a time. 
  • Consistency of the dough should be soft. Apply few drops of oil on top and cover it. Let it rest for half hour. (I made dough from 1 cup of wheat flour, as I wanted to make 5 sheera poli, but the stuffing is enough to make 10 sheera poli). Meanwhile make the sheera / stuffing.
Making of Sheera / Sooji Halwa / Stuffing for sheera poli

  • First put the milk in a saucepan and let it boil on medium heat.
  • In other pan, heat ghee/clarified butter. Keep the heat medium. Add sooji/semolina and roast until it starts to change it's color. Keep stirring continuously. It may take around 6-8 minutes. Make sure you don't burn it.
  • Once the sooji is nicely roasted, start adding hot milk. Add little milk at a time and keep mixing. Make sure there are no lumps of sooji. Sooji absorbs the milk instantly.
  • Add sugar and cardamom powder, mix well. Cover the pan and let it cook on low heat for 5-6 minutes. Keep stirring in between.
  • Now sheera is ready. Let it cool down completely. 
  • Then make medium sized balls out of it. Also make balls from dough.

  • Take a ball of a dough and roll it like a small roti. Place the stuffing on it and seal the edges nicely.
  • Dip into flour and roll it gently and evenly from all the sides.
  • Transfer it on a hot griddle. Roast nicely from both sides by applying ghee/oil. 
  • Serve hot by applying some more ghee on top.
