  • 150 grams plain flour/all purpose flour
  • 3-4 tbsp ghee (clarified butter) (as required)

  1. Boil dal in plenty of water till soft but not broken.
  2. Drain dal well and let it rest for 10-15 minutes.

  4. Mash jaggery till lumps break down completely.
  5. Mix jaggery well into dal.
  6. Put this mixture in a heavy pan and cook till a soft lump is formed.
  7. Take care to stir continuously, otherwise dal will stick to bottom of the non-stick pan and will get burned.(If not using non-stick pan then better adding dal and jaggery mix to non-stick pan add 3-4 tbsp ghee to the respective not-stick pan)
