Today the letter “S” made me do the impossible i.e. made me do sheera roti with great enthusiasm for the event.
I feel that these roti’s have a cover made of Maida which has been kneaded with lots of oil to get that elasticity required for the cover of such sweet roti’s like puranpoli .
But I am averse to using Maida because I feel its something that has lost its nutritional value and which should be eaten as less as possible. So I have made the cover with wheat flour and so it will be a little different from the store bought one.
1 cup Rava
1 cup milk
1 cup water
11/2 cup of sugar
½ tsp elaichi powder
ghee for frying and garnishing
for the covering
knead your atta (wheat flour) as usual with a little bit of oil
FOR THE STUFFING OR SHEERA
Roast the rava till it turns brown and emits a yummy flavour.
Remove on a separate plate
In the same pan take one cup water, milk and 11/2 cup sugar
Add elaichi powder
Let the mixture come to a boil
Add the roasted Rava
Add ghee and stir till it forms a thick mass.
METHOD FOR MAKING THE SHEERA ROTI OR SANJOREE
Take a ball of the wheat atta, stuff the atta with sheera and roll
Make it just like you would for aloo parathas
Fry it on a hot griddle or tava
Pour a little ghee around the sanjoree
Serve hot with ghee
You can have a nice vegetable pulao and make it a complete meal.
