2. Besan Sheera Candy
Besan ka sheera is an age-old recipe from Punjab, which boasts the goodness of turmeric, ghee, and black pepper, combined with roasted besan. While the sheera is of a semi-thick, beverage-like consistency, we have turned it into yummy candies. It comes loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, which help boost the absorption of nutrients, promote gut health, and may even give relief in pain. Turmeric is also high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that may aid the body to fight cold and cough. You can also add sugar or jaggery to make it tasty.
