Almonds are known for its healthy values. I have used almonds, raisins, roasted channa (hurikadale - Kannada language) and little cashews . Added jaggery for sweet taste. A tablespoon of ghee for nice flavour. Raisins are dry grapes.. (It is also called as Currents or Sultanas). 
Lets see some benefits of having Almonds and Raisins in our diet.

One handful of almonds, around one ounce, contains one - eight of our necessary daily protein. Almonds are source of vitamin E, copper, magnesium. They contain high levels of healthy unsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants. They are good for diabetes, lowering the cholesterol and control blood sugar in our body.
