It has finally started raining here and the weather has become cool. So, yesterday I thought of making ‘Kanik Sheera’. This is made from Wheat flour and Jaggery and so is a little warm for the body. We generally make it during winters as the body accepts it better in cool weather.
Even though Kanik Sheera is sweet, it is a tasty and healthy. Wheat is believed to be one of the most wholesome food items and ensures a nutritious diet. Ghee, as we all know, is a superb power food. It is very nutritious and boosts immunity. It is the best herbal energizer. Jaggery has many health benefits too- It is known to prevent constipation, detox liver, is a blood purifier, boosts immunity, is an aid for weight loss and many more. You can read more benefits here.
