  • Split green gram skinless (dhuli moong dal) 1 1/4 cups

  • Raisins 2 tablespoons

  • Mawa (khoya) 2 cups

  • Ghee 2 tablespoons

  • Cashewnuts 2 tablespoons

  • Sugar 1 cup

  • Rose water 1 teaspoon


Step 1

Wash and soak moong dal in three cups of water for five to six hours. Wash raisins and pat them dry. Break khoya into tiny granules. Drain dal, grind to a coarse paste and keep aside. Heat two tablespoons of ghee in a kadai, fry cashewnuts and raisins and keep aside.
