 Seero( Sheera)is also known as Suji ka halwa is a type of halvah made by toasting common-wheat semolina in a fat like ghee or oil, and adding a sweetener like sugar syrup or honey. It can be served for breakfast or as a dessert item. The basic recipe is made with just semolina, sugar or honey, ghee, and sometimes milk.

In 14th-century Spain, semolina was cooked with almond milk, oil and optionally saffron for coloring. In India, sheera is made from common wheat semolina (farina), ghee, and sugar; cardamom and milk, almonds and cashew-nuts are added.
