Sheera Porridge (India)

Sheera Porridge (India)

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom powder
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the flour and butter until a paste forms. Saute until slightly browned.

Stir in all remaining ingredients. Mix well. Remove from heat and cover. Allow porridge to set for 5 minutes until water is absorbed.

Distribute warm porridge to serving bowls. Sprinkle with coconut. Enjoy!

This sweet wheat porridge is also great with raisins (2 Tablespoons) and sliced almonds (1 Tablespoon) in place of the coconut. Add them after you remove the pan from the heat.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Bennett for this recipe.

That was cool. I was looking for something very different - but still vaguely similar to oatmeal. The consistency was like a thick soup. The flavor was great. Who knew you could do this with wheat flour. Great discovery!

From Info

This is not really Indian porridge nor is it Halwa (Indian Pudding). The Indian porridge is made with cracked wheat and milk not flour and Halwa is made with semolina.
