Preparation

  1. Heat 1 tbsp of ghee in a heavy bottomed pan and roast the gram flour till light brown and nice aroma comes.Once it is cool,sieve the flour.
  2. Transfer it into a bowl.Add 2-3 tbsp of melted ghee to the flour and mix well to a smooth paste .This is to prevent lumps while adding it to the sugar syrup.
  3. Heat the same pan and add sugar and water to it.let it boil.
  4. In the mean time, heat ghee in another pan on low flame.
  5. Once sugar syrup reaches thread like consistency,(when sugar syrup is placed between thumb and index finger,it should stick to form a string), keep the flame to low and sprinkle flour slowly and keep on stirring.
  6. Add 1/2 cup ghee to it and keep on stirring.while adding ghee, it will froth up and color changes.
  7. Add the remaining ghee to it and once the flour absorbs all the ghee and mixture become thick,add baking powder to it.Stir well.
  8. After adding baking powder,bubbles arise and  it starts leaving the sides of the pan.
  9. Turn off the flame and immediately transfer the hot mix into a greased plate.
  10. Make sure to spread the mixture evenly on all sides.
  11. Cut into desired shapes using a knife when it is warm.(Once it is cool it will be too hard to cut it .)
  12. Let it cool completely and slowly remove the pieces from the plate.
  13. Store them in a air tight container at room temperature.
