Welcome back to “healthy eating for busy moms” series.
As we had reached on the last week of #BlogchatterA2Z and only few more days had left to reach on end, so I had thought why not “Kuch meetha ho jaye!”
So, with alphabet “W”, I am sharing three easy and healthy sweet recipes with wheat flour. All these recipes are simple and easy to make. And definitely a healthier choice in compare to other ready made sweets.
So, let’s get started with the recipes.
Three easy sweet recipes with wheat flour
Wheat flour ladoo
This one is my all time favourite recipe. I usually made this during winter, and also for ganesh chaturthi celebration.
- Wheat flour (Coarse)- 2 cup
- Sugar- 1 cup or as per your taste
- Ghee- as needed
- Dry fruits of your choice (almond, cashew. Walnut) finely chopped- ½ cup
- First take sugar and grind this in a grinder as a power. Take out this sugar powder in a bowl and keep it aside.
- Now, take ghee in a pan and warm it slightly, then add coarse wheat flour in it. (if you do not have coarse flour, you may take routine wheat flour and can add ½ cup sooji or semolina in it)
- Next, roast the wheat flour on medium heat for 15-20 minutes.
- Stir it properly while roasting, when the color of wheat flour changes to brown and a nice aroma comes, it indicates that flour has been roasted properly.
- Take out this flour in a bowl, add sugar powder and dry fruit mixture. Add ghee if needed.
- Now, grease your hands with little ghee and make ladoo with this mixture.
- Store this in an air- tight container. Your tasty and healthy wheat ladoo in ready to enjoy.
Wheat flour sheera or halwa
This one is another simple and tasty recipe and I just loved it.
- Wheat flour (coarse) 2 cup
- Sugar 1 cup or as per your taste
- Ghee as needed
- Hot water as needed
- Dry fruits of your choice- ½ cup
- First take out a vessel and take enough quantity of ghee in it.
- When ghee gets warm, add coarse wheat flour in it. You may take routine wheat flour too, but using coarse wheat flour gives it a nice texture and better taste.
- Next roast this wheat flour slowly on medium flame. It usually takes 15-20 minutes to get it roasted properly.
- When it gets roasted properly, add 1-2 cup of warm water in it. And stir it continuously. This step is very important, otherwise you may have lumps in your final dish.
- When water get soaked, add sugar and again stir it for few minutes.
- Close the lid and allow this to cook on slow flame for 5 minutes.
- Garnish this with dry fruits and serve hot.
- Your tasty and yummy wheat flour halwa is ready to eat.
Wheat flour sweet pancake (sweet chila or meethe pude)
This one is again a easy and tasty recipe and I am sure you all had made this already. My mom used to make besan ka chilla and sweet chila combo during rainy season. And we as a family used to enjoy this so much.
- Wheat flour 2 cup
- Sugar 1 cup or as per your taste
- Salt a pinch
- Fennel seed 1 teaspoon
- Water as needed
- Baking soda (optional) ¼ teaspoon
- First take out wheat flour in a bowl and add sugar and salt
- Now, add fennel seed, mixed everything properly.
- Next add water slowly and make a nice batter with this.
- You may add ¼ baking soda at the end, I had tried even without adding baking soda and results are equally good.
- Now, heat the skillet and add little ghee or oil.
- Take the batter and spread it evenly.
- Shallow fry this from both sides, until it turns brown.
- Take out from skillet after proper roasting. Serve hot.
- Your sweet chilla or wheat flour pancake is ready to use.
I believe, we can use jaggery instead of sugar in all these recipes but I had not tried it personally, so did not mention the use of jaggery here. If you had experience of using jaggery instead of sugar, in these recipes. Please share with me!
