1/2 cup sugar

1/3 cup ghee or oil

4 seeds of Green cardamom

1/4 cup semolina


Heat the milk and sugar until simmer. (make sure sugar dissolved) Put it aside, you’ll need it in a while.

Add ghee/oil and cardamom seeds in a non-stick wok and put on stove over medium-low heat.

Let the oil heat up until cardamom smell started to arise. (3 to 5 mins)

Add gram flour and semolina, fry on a low heat, stirring continuously until gram flour starts changing color to light brown.

Fry it till mixture starts to take a light brown shade than golden brown (keep stirring continuously). Frying will take about 10 minutes.
