Oh, the halwa of 14 Sha'ban.



Heat three tablespoons ghee or butter. Add 250g semolina. Cook till light brown. Add 1/2 cup sultanas, handful pistachio nuts. Add 1 pint milk. Cook till thick, add 1/4 cup sugar and two teaspoons freshly ground cardamom. Cook until thick (few minutes) put on tray, cut when cool.
