    3/4 cup
  • Sugar
    4 cup
  • Desi ghee
    2 1/2 cups

Method

Step 1


Sift the gram flour twice. Heat the ghee in a pan and keep it hot over a very low heat. Cook the sugar with two and half cups of water over medium heat, stirring continuously till it dissolves. Increase heat and bring the syrup to a boil.

Step 2


Cook without stirring for about five minutes or till it reaches a single-thread consistency. Add half a cup of hot ghee to the syrup and stir; add gram flour gradually, stirring all the while to prevent lumps from forming.

Step 3


Stir continuously till the mixture starts bubbling. Pour in the remaining hot ghee half a cup at a time. Every time you add the ghee the mixture should sizzle and froth.

Step 4


Continue this process till all the ghee is consumed and there is a pleasant sweet roasted aroma. Pour the mixture into a greased tray. Cool a little and cut into squares.

Step 5


squares. Separate the squares when completely cooled and store in an airtight container to retain its freshness and crispness.
