    sometimes, the temptation to eat sweets and dishes is more because we tell ourselves that we are dieting..:bonk what if we can get around to eating them with a lesser guilt..absolutely i know you agree with me..

    so i would like to explore and share my own concoctions over here, i am sure these maybe already tried tested by many out there, but this is for others who love to experiment...

    this was something i tried last diwali, at the last moment, because we did not have the festival, but wanted the kids to have something..(oh at that point, we were on a weight loss journey as a family..)

    I made it in 10/15 minutes depending on the quantity.

    100 gms custard powder - vannilla flavour
    2 tblp skimmed milk powder.
    2 tblsp sugar.
    1 cup water.
    1 tblsp ghee.
    nuts to taste..i chopped 10 pistas and 10 almonds..

    add all the above in a deep mw..bowl..and leave it to cookd inside with the ..for 4 minutes..open, stir.add the ghee, and cook for another 2 minutes. stir again. add half the powdered nuts. cook for another 4 minutes or till you see the ghee leaving and the mixture becoming a dough like consistency..

    Spread it on a plate (you can remove the ghee, into another plate, bowl ), and sprinkle the rest of the nuts.cool it. you can cut it into places. usually i wrap them in cling film.

    it is not too rich, it gives in to the feeling of having a sweet..do try it.
