Healthy Barley dessert with Palm sugar
A delicious moment!
Method; Boil water in a vessel and add the washed pearl Barley into it. Let it cook for 25-30 minutes or till the grains are soft to touch. Use pressure cooker to speed up the cooking, it takes just 5-6 minutes on high to cook the same.
Heat ghee in a wok and fry the Almonds first and then the raisins for a few seconds. Add the cooked Barley in the hot ghee and stir. Add the palm sugar & Cinnamon powder and keep stirring. The mix will become very liquid at this stage. Cook for 5-7 minutes till the mixture looks dry. Take off the heat and serve hot.
The chewy grains of Barley makes it an interesting substitute to rice or wholewheat dessert. Replace Palm sugar with white sugar or Honey if you can’t get it.
