Our this month's Indian Cooking Challenge is this Sindhi winter special sweet called Majoon, its ressembles and tastes very much like our paalkova or thiratti paal,with loads of nuts and unsweetened khoya majoon tastes absolutely divine and highly addictive..Vaishali of Ribbons to Pastas shared this wonderful sindhi sweets for this month's challenge,thanks to Vaishali for this excellent winter special..Traditionally this winter special is prepared specially by moms in most of the Sindhi's families for their daughters and send to them,how wonderful na..I deduced the quantity of the ingredients given in the original recipe and definitely i regret for it,coz this sweet is simply out of the world, i got to prepare some very soon as everyone at home just love it very  much..

1/2cup Almonds
1/2cup Cashews

  37. This is a great flavor profile... yummy indeed. I may be crucified for asking this about such a staple ingredient in the subcontinent... however, I am wondering if you have ever explored or could recommend a suitable alternative to using the ghee. I too love the unique flavor which is added with ghee however it so dramatically changes the the nutritional dimension of these dishes. Thoughts?
