Ingredients

  • Milk
    2 litres

    1/4 teaspoon
  • Sugar
    4 tablespoons
  • Ghee
    1/2 tablespoon
  • FOR DECORATION

Method

Step 1


Boil the milk in a large, thick-bottomed kadai till it thickens slightly. Add the alum (phitkari) to the thickened milk and stir continuously till the milk becomes grainy.

Step 2


Cook till most of the moisture evaporates and a solid mass remains. Add the sugar and mix well. Cook for five or ten minutes longer till the mixture thickens again. Grease an aluminium tray with ghee.

Step 3


Pour the milk mixture into the tray and level the surface. Sprinkle the sliced pistachios on top. Leave to set for a few hours in a cool, dry place.

Step 4


When completely set, decorate with silver varq and cut into squares or diamonds.
