Wednesday, September 28, 2011

This Indian dessert was my sister's innovation which I liked it very much and was simple to prepare.It had broken wheat,different nuts,milk and jaggery which makes it nutritious and tasty too! Instead of jaggery, sugar can be used.

This recipe serves six to eight people.

Jaggery or Sugar ½ cup

Soaked Cashewnuts ½ cup

Clarified Butter or Ghee 2 tsp
Soaked Saffron (optional) 1 tbsp
Coloured Tutifruti and Raisins for decoration


  1. Clean and wash the broken wheat and put it in a dish.

  2. Add half the milk and half cup water and cook it in pressure cooker or microwave till soft.

  3. Make a paste of the soaked almonds and cashewnuts with little milk and keep it aside.
