This is a very interesting dessert with a name that rings Arabic to me! In Arabic ma'joon means kneaded. Love all the flavors.

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?
