  • In a pot add ghee and cardamom, let it crackle then add vermicelli.
  • Fry for few seconds. Add milk and sugar. Now leave it on low flame. Keep on stirring.

  • Soak almonds and pistachio n hot water and remove skin. Chop them fine.
  • Grate coconut with grater. ( do not use desiccated coconut , it will not give a required taste)
