  • Rajgira Sheera Recipe by Cooking with Smita

Rajgira Sheera or Rajgira Halwa Recipe – A simple and easy sweet dish for Upvas/Vrat/Fasting days. There are many Upvas recipes made with Rajgira. I’ve already shared more than 15 Fasting Food recipes on my YouTube Channel, from Farali Roti to Upvas Dosa. Here I’m sharing a dessert recipe you can eat during fasting days like holy month of Shravan or Navratri etc. Rajgira Sheera made from Rajgira Atta (Amaranth Flour), Milk & Sugar. This Halwa is flavoured with Cardamom Powder & garnished with Dry Fruits. Rajgira, also known as Amaranth is also a Gluten-Free grain. Therefore it’s a perfect dessert recipe if you are allergic to gluten. Roasting Rajgira flour in Ghee is a crucial step in making this Sheera. Check out the step-by-step recipe below and video tutorial.


  • 1 cup Rajgira Atta/Amaranth Flour
  • ½ cup Clarified Butter
  • 3/4th cup Sugar
