sukhadi: energy Square

This energy square is a rich and sweet snack for all ages.

A pinch of ginger powder will help to make it more suitable for Kapha and for the winter months.

Kamut flour is high in Niacin and rich in minerals such as copper, iron, zinc, magnesium, and phosphorus.
Kamut flour is lighter than both spelt and wheat, making it a better choice for Kapha.  Vata and Pitta can handle all 3 flours.  Wheat is heavy and can produce lethargy in the mind and puffiness in the face and belly.  Avoid it.

1 cup organic spelt, kamut
3-5 tbsps ghee (clarified butter)
3-4 tbsps jaggery (or to taste)
1 tsp roasted sesame seeds

Grease a large, flat pan or cookie sheet with ghee
Dry-roast sesame seeds in a hot skillet, stirring now and again to prevent burning
Chop jaggery, if it is hard
Heat a frying pan on medium and add the ghee
When ghee is hot, add whole flour of choice and stir it constantly until it is fragrant and slightly brown
Turn off heat and let mixture cool for a couple of minute
Add roasted sesame seeds and chopped jaggery and mix it well
Put mixture on the greased pan and gently pat it flat with a spatula until it is about 2-3 centimeters thick
With tip of a sharp knife, cut into bite sized diamond or square shapes
