Besan – 1 Cup
Milk – 1 Cup
Ghee – 1 Cup (melted)
Coconut (Grated) – 1 Cup
Sugar – 2 cups
Dry roast besan till you start getting a nice aroma.. now add coconut and mix it for a few minutes. Add sugar, milk and half the ghee and keep stirring it till there are no lumps.. The order is important..
Once the mixture starts boiling it will start thickening. Now add the remaining ghee. Do not stop stirring as it will start getting burnt. Once the mixture starts leaving the pan and becomes thick, switch off the stove. Grease a tray and pour the mixture.
When it starts cooling take a greased knife and cut it into desired pieces. Once completed cooled you can store it in an airtight container.
Usually 3 cups of sugar is added. That’s why it’s called 7 cups. But 3 cups of sugar becomes extremely sweet. You don’t want to end up getting diabetic! Right? 😉
So 2 cups would be ideal. You can add 1 cup of cashew powder instead.
Wishing you all a happy and safe Diwali.. 😃
