  • Milk
    1 1/2 litres

Step 1

Boil milk in a heavy-bottomed pan. Reduce heat and simmer till it is reduced and reaches a coating consistency. Add grated mawa and mix well.

Bring it to room temperature. Reserve two tablespoons of sugar and form one-string sugar syrup with the rest of the sugar and two cups of water.

Step 3

Dissolve saffron in a teaspoon of hot milk. Add it to the sugar syrup. Add refined flour, green cardamom powder and the reserved sugar to the reduced milk.

Mix well and make a batter of pouring consistency using a little milk if required. Heat sufficient ghee in a wide mouthed flat-bottomed kadai.

Step 5

Pour a ladle full of batter to form a pancake. Cook on slow to medium heat. Turn it over when it starts to colour slightly.

Step 6

When both sides are done, drain and immerse in the sugar syrup. Garnish with pistachios and serve hot.
