1/2 cup water

3/4 cup sugar (or as per taste)

1 cup ghee

Dry fruit optional (I have not used here)


Heat ghee in a kadai, add wheat flour and roast it till the raw smell of the flour goes and it turns light brown in colour. Cook it on low flame,while continuously stirring

Add elaichi powder and close the lid,let it cook on slow flame for another 5 minutes

Open the lid stir again ,you can see the ghee oozing out.its done
