The inspiration for this wholemeal halwa is the classic Sikh preparation called 'karha prashad'. This halwa has the addition of cardamom, sultanas and nuts. My kids love this halwa on a cold day as a snack after school.
Something else. I added 1 tbsp desiccated coconut and left out the cashew nuts because I don't like them, and it was delicious! - 14 May 2010
This is absolutely delish. - 14 May 2010
I really didn't know to expect when I made this and I was wonderfully suprised. I didn't have cashews, I only had hazelnuts, so I improvised with those, other than that, I cut the recipe in half as there were only 2 of us. This is the perfect dessert after a spicy Indian meal. Thanks for the recipe! - 19 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
