Wheatish Delight

Ingredients to make Wheatish Delight

  • wheat grains - 1 cup
  • sugar - 1 1/2 cup
  • water - 750 ml
  • clarified butter (Ghee) - 3/4 cup
  • cardamom (Elaichi) powder - 1 tsp
  • cashew - 2 tbsp (roughly chopped)
  • Yellow food colour - a pinch (optional)

How to make Wheatish Delight

  1. Wash the wheat grains thoroughly and soak them in enough water for about 6 hrs.
  2. Drain the water and grind the wheat in a blender.
  3. Add some water to the wheat pulp and sieve it through a soup strainer. Press the pulp to extract the milky white liquid.
  4. Repeat this process for a couple of more times till you extract most of the milky liquid from the wheat pulp.
  5. Let this liquid stand undisturbed for about 30 mins.
  6. In a heavy bottomed pan take the measured sugar and add just enough water to soak it.
  7. After 30 mins decant the clear liquid if any from the wheat pulp milk and keep it aside.
  8. Put the sugar on heat and let it boil for about 3-4 mins so that you get a syrupy consistency.
  9. In the meantime warm up the ghee.
  10. Grease a plate with ghee into which you will pour the finished sweet and also the underside of a small stainless steel bowl (katori)
  11. When the sugar gets to a syrupy consistency stir the wheat pulp milk and pour it into the sugar syrup.
  12. Now cook the sugar syrup and wheat pulp milk on a low flame stirring continuously till it starts to thicken.
  13. Add the yellow food colour and mix well.
  14. As the mixture starts to thicken, slowly add the warm ghee little by little while stirring the cooking mixture continuously.
  15. Once the mixture has thickened considerably add the cardamom powder.
  16. The mixture will keep thickening and slowly it will start to leave the sides of the pan.
  17. Once it starts to leave the sides of the pan and gets a ball like appearance transfer it to the greased plate and pat it with the greased bowl to get a uniformly thick sheet.
  18. Wait for a few minutes for it to cool down and then cut into diamond shaped pieces.
  19. Roughly chop cashew and garnish the diamond shaped pieces.
  20. Store in an airtight container and it will last for a week to 10 days.
  21. This is can made on festive occasions and can also be given to children in their school lunch box since they are no mess and instant energy boosters.

My Tip:

If you feel that the sugar syrup and wheat pulp milk is thickening very fast then add some of the decanted liquid so that it can cook properly. In order to make cardamom powder grind it with a tsp of sugar and it will get powdered very easily.
