What is panjeeri?

My high school friend Mona posted on Facebook that she "can't stop eating Panjeeri!"

"What is Panjeeri?" I asked myself. I Googled the word and found this info (and image:)

Panjiri is an Indian sweet-dish, made from whole wheat flour fried in sugar and ghee, heavily laced with dried fruits and herbal gums. It is usually eaten in the winters to ward off cold. Panjiri is normally given to nursing mothers. It is considered Hot Food to help with the production of breast milk.

It looks like a yummy treat but Mona's friends say it's not healthy. That's probably why it tastes so good.
Sweetness always!
