Healthy and Sweet Laapsi Halwa

Laapsi is an Indian sweet dish made of dalia (broken wheat) and ghee along with nuts, raisins and dried fruits. Dalia is a natural source of B-vitamins, minerals, fibre and protein and is much healthier than packaged foods as it has no preservatives. It is an ideal food for growing children.
