Default an interesting Sindhi recipe

I am paging through a newly acquired Sindhi cookbook and came
across an odd recipe, which could easily be converted to low carb.

Egg Halwa
Source: Delectable Dishes from Sindh by aAroona Reejhsinghani.

1 egg, well beaten
2 Tbsps sugar (which artificial sweetener would provide syrupy
texture? for that matter, even though the author refers to
"syrup" later, dissolving sugar/sweetener in milk does not make a
syrup))
3 tbsps milk (either the LC "milk", which is now Calorie
Countdown, or cream)
2 Tbsps ghee
1 tsp flour (almond flour looks like a good choice)
2 Tbsps khus khus (poppy seeds)
1 tsp cardamom seeds, coarsely pounded (that seems a lot, given
the scale of this recipe; even I, cardamom lover, would probably
try this with significantly less)
25 grams mixed almonds and pistachios, sliced

Dissolve sugar (substitute) in "milk" or cream. Heat the ghee and
fry the (almond) flour to a golden color. Add the egg and cook
over a slow fire, stirring constantly until it starts to set. Mix
in the "sugar" syrup (again, I note that this would not be a syrup
unless the author's directions are very sloppy--and it not being a
syrup simplifies the choice re the artificial sweetener), along
with the poppy seeds and cardamom. Continue stirring until the
halwa is fairly thick. Serve hot, sprinkled with nuts.

I rather like this combination of flavors, which is why the recipe
caught my eye. Assuming this recipe has any merit, I would
probably try adding some rosewater to it.

As a thickener, as in this case, I would use about 1/8 tsp of xanthan gum.

That is, indeed, a better idea. Thanks.
