In a deep bottomed pan, heat the ghee fry the raisins and keep it aside. In the same pan fry Nutreat Kids rava till light brown. Now add water/milk to this. Cook it on a slow flame till done. Add sugar and cook it for 8-10 minutes till you get the Halwa texture. Now add the fried raisins and treat your kid.

My journey with Nutreat Kids products
The zest to start making my own recipes for my child instead of opting for ready made food options is what started my journey towards Nutreat. The store bought options were only calorie rich and were completely low on nutrition value, let alone the tons of preservatives that were in it! And after a great research and help from many, I found a wonderful recipe prepared traditionally by my grand-mom. We made it so nutritious using the traditional sun drying & stone grinding methods (almost all ingredients). We cold-process it to ensure that the products retain the maximum nutrient values. Try them and you’ll never settle for a store option after you have used Nutreat products. Hand-made, with lots of love, no preservatives or artificial flavours makes these products extra special!
