thinking clouds with question marks..Believe me,it’s simply excellent.NO taste or smell of
greens.As you all know the benefits of Vallarai or Gotukola or Brahmi ,this is worth trying.
This green having the shape of the brain is very much beneficial to the brain.I am an addict
to health related programmes,and there I extracted the idea (not the recipe) to create this recipe.
All the ingredients are full of nutrients ,no sugar only jaggery is used.
Black grapes are rich in vitamin C and K and aids in boosting Immunity.Dry black grapes are
good for constipation,good to increase level of power antioxidants preventing cancer,good for
hypertension,anaemic patients and overall health.Including this daily in your diet should be
made compulsory in any form.
So let’s get on to the healthy halwa recipe.

3/4 cup black dry grapes
1/2 cup cashewnuts
1/4 cup ghee
A pinch of salt

1 – 1.5 cups jaggery syrup.(1-3/4 cup grated jaggery melted in a little water)
Few cashewnuts to top the halwa.
1/4 tsp cardamon powder(optional)
Heat a little ghee in a thick bottomed pan,and sauté the leaves,grapes,and cashewnuts till the raw smell disappears.
Grind to a coarse paste,and return the mix to the pan .Add the melted jaggery and cornflour mixture and keep stirring,adding ghee simultaneously.
Once you see the mixture leaving the sides of the pan,transfer onto a greased plate and sprinkle the cashewnuts .Allow to cool and cut into shapes.
