•Some people want sheera to be in specific color so for them it is recommended to add food color because the taste will be same but color will be of your choice and it looks good

•Dry fruits one can use according to what they want to add like in my home my brothers avoid eating raisin so I generally skip them.

•Don’t roast rava too much,roast until it gets light red in color.

•The water in the sheera should be absorbed properly otherwise it won’t taste good.

•Adding additional amount of ghee in last step will give a very nice flavor to Halwa.

•Always use Desi ghee to make sheera believe me it will give a very much good taste as compare to any other things like oil etc.

•Add sugar according to your taste like some people like to have sheera more sweet and there are people you like to have less sweet so as per your preference you can adjust it.

•You can also add milk instead of water to enhance the taste.
