A pinch of salt
2 1/2 cups water (or milk or water & milk mixture)
3. Mom adds a pinch of salt as it balances the sweetness of the shira.
4. In my family, shira is served with a spoonful of green chili or raw mango pickle.
5. I have reduced the amount of ghee/clarified butter from the original recipe. For richer taste, you can use 3/4 cup ghee/clarified butter.
