Dalia halwa (Bulgar wheat)

 This is one of my mother in law's recipe and is really healthy and wholesome. I prefer it warm and it is perfect for a cold and chilly winter day. 

1 cup fine dalia
21/2 cups water
3/4 cup jaggery (powdered)
1 cup of mixed fry fruits (i used chopped dates, raisins, cashews, toasted and slivered almonds)
1tsp cardamom powder
1tbsp ghee

Take a pan and heat ghee in it. Add the dalia and roast the dalia in the ghee on low flame for about 5 minutes till you get toasted fragrance.Add the dates and raisins.  Now add the water and jaggery and cover the pan with a lid. Let it cook for about 10 minutes till all the water is absorbed and the dalia is soft.  Add the rest of the nuts and cardamom powder. Serve warm. Some people like to add milk in the end to make it creamier.
