Once my father in law asked my MIL to prepare wheat halwa.My mom in law prepared everything for making it. She was doing this with the proper method but wrongly she has put more sugar in this so halwa turned to Burfi.

Believe me it was awesome and I took a snap with the 2-3 piece what left out . So credit of today’s recipe goes to my MIL.

Wheat Cake

Preparation time – 10 min
Cooking time – 40 – 50 mins

Samba wheat – 200 gm
Sugar – 300 gm
Cardamom powder – 2 tsp
Ghee – 1 cup (200 gm)

·         Wash and soak samba wheat in water for 8 hours.
·         After 8 hours grind this with adding water.
·         Now strain through a strainer and remove thick milk.
·         Repeat this procedure for 4-5 times.
·         Till you get milk out of soaked wheat.
·         Now heat this milk in thick bottom pan.
·         Do not leave this unattended.
·         Keep stirring it.
·         Once milk becomes thicker then add sugar in this.
·         Keep stirring it.
·         Once it is like semi solids.
·         Add ghee in this.
·         Keep stirring it till it become thick like chappati wet flour.
