Samba Wheat Halwa

I won’t call this an extraordinary dessert but it definitely caters another interesting and healthy number to sweet-toothed persons like my husband. The suitability of samba wheat for halwa is ironical, it is stiff and chewy even after cooking while we are used to eating gooey halwas; the beauty is, because of these very tendencies they absorb less ghee and sugar and still keep the halwa sweet .

2.       Milk – 1 cup
3.       Sugar – ¼ cup
4.       Cardamom powder – ½ tsp
5.       Almonds – 2 tbsp chopped
