Red colour - 1/4 tsp

Milk- 1 cup


Method

Take pressure pan or cooker add moong dhal, milk & 2 cups of water, allow upto 3 or 4 whisle.
Mix well together ( using hand blender gives better results as you would get a fine paste).


pre heat another pan, add moong dhal paste, allow to cook.

Add sugar. After adding sugar the mixture will get little runny.Keep simmering.

In a separate pan melt 2 tbsp of ghee & add in the wheat & plain flour to cook it until raw flavour extracts.
Add this flour mix to the simmering moong dhal mix once the sugar dissolves.
Dissolve red colour in the mix.
Fry some cashewnuts separately & keep separate for garnish.
Start to add in the melted ghee slowly & mix throughly until you get a texture which doesnt stick to your hand or to the pan.
Serve hot or cold.
