Atta / wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Water - 1/2 cup
Ghee - 1/4 cup + more if needed
Cardamom powder - A pinch
Cashew nuts - 5
Badam (Optional) - For Garnishing
Salt - A pinch
1. Measure and keep all the ingredients ready. Heat a non stick pan, add ghee (add cashew nuts and fry till golden *if adding*), followed by flour.
Keep stirring in low or medium flame to ensure even browning. Roast until the colour changes slightly red and nice aroma rises. Take care not to burn by putting flame in high.
3. Add water with salt, keep stirring while you pour. It will become thick and get cooked soon. Add sugar and mix
4. Flame should be in low or medium at all the times. Keep stirring until it turns glossy and ghee oozes out. Takes hardly 2-3 minutes.
If ghee is less, add more. Do not reduce ghee as while you add water, it may form lumps.
2. Reduce sugar as per your need. I am sweet toothed. Salt is optional, but it enhances the sweetness.
