    Hey Raji,

    Once in a while, we all crave for something sweet (and often regret the overload of calories once the sweetmeat has been consumed).

    However, you’ve put up such a HEALTHY DESSERT!!! Soyabean has a glycemic index of only 30% (low rate of entry into the bloodstream, thereby maintaining blood sugar levels; ideal for diabetics and pregnant women). Additionally, the other ingredients are also highly nutritious (seasame seeds, for instance, are loaded with iron). I also appreciate that honey has been substituted for sugar and that ghee has been used minimally.

    Well done and keep them coming!
