Shingada Pithacha Sheera is a halwa/sheera recipe made of shingada i.e. chestnut flour. Made during Navratri vrat, this is an easy and quick recipe. Like most of the halwa/sheera recipe, this too, is very simple and needs minimum ingredients. Unlike most of the halwa recipes, the Shingada sheera needs no milk. The secret to perfect Singhada Sheera is to continuously sauté. Incase left unattended, this dish tends to burn, so it’s always good to be by its side until you turn the flame off. Delicious and healthy, this farali Shigada Pitachi Sheera is similar to the Rajgira Halwa I have already posted.




So let’s get started with this yummy farali Shingada aate ka  Halwa;
