Method

Step 1


Mix gram flour, milk and three tablespoons of ghee in a bowl. Cover and let it stand for about two hours. Then rub with fingertips to resemble breadcrumbs.

Step 2


Grease a thali. Heat remaining ghee in a thick bottomed pan. Add the gram flour mixture and cook on medium heat till a nice flavour is given out and the gram flour turns darker. Add green cardamom powder and mix.

Step 3


Meanwhile make a one string syrup with sugar and one cup of water. Add saffron and mix.

Step 4


Add the syrup to the gram flour mixture and cook stirring continuously till all the liquid is absorbed and the mixture thickens and becomes a little dry.

Step 5


Pour the mixture into the thali and spread evenly. Smoothen the top.

Step 6


Sprinkle pistachios and set aside to cool and set. Cut into squares and serve.
