Nariyal Sooji Sheera / Coconut Sooji Sheera (Halwa)

Nariyal Sooji Sheera / Coconut Sheera (Halwa) – A variation of traditional Indian sweet “Sheera” but made using coconut along with from semolina, milk, sugar and ghee. This quickly made dessert flavored with coconut, powdered nuts and cardamom is perfect to make for any occasion.

To make it vegan use coconut oil and coconut milk in place of ghee and milk. You can also use fresh grated coconut in place of desiccated coconut.
