Add chopped cashews, chopped dried fruit, powdered cinnamon and cardamoms. Cook until mixture comes off the sides of the pan. Meanwhile have 1/2 cup rulang roasted and set aside. Lastly add the 2 cups of roasted semolina to the sugar and milk mixture and stir well.

Sprinkle a little bit of roasted rulang onto a cutting board. When the mixture has reached the right consistency remove from fire and turn on to the cutting board and flatten on top and allow it to cool for few minutes. You may sprinkle the top with roasted rulang if desired.
Cut the aluwa pieces into diamond shape or any desired shape whist still warm.

(Note: If the mixture is too watery you may add more roasted semolina that was set aside to get the right consistency)
