Sakthi Sweets

        The objective is to make sweets with whole grains and unrefined sugar and ghee or butter instead of refined grains and sugar and hydrogenated oils. The advantage of using whole grains for sweets is that the fiber content in them traps sugar which will not be released for absorption. The obvious reason is that the whole grains has a store of nutrients of its own and so will not pull out body's reserve nutrients for its digestion. This is a healthy approach to save for body nutrients and prevent exhaustion of them avoiding refined food products.
