Show me for serving

2 liters full fat milk
3/4 cup white granulated sugar
1 tsp cardamom (elaichi) powder
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
ghee for greasing the pan
  1. Heat the milk in a deep non-stick pan and bring to a boil on high heat. It will take about 7-8 minutes to come to complete boil. Stir in between scraping the bottom of the pan. Use a wide spatula large area is covered while stirring.
  2. Once the milk comes to complete boil, reduce heat so that the milk settles down, otherwise it will overflow. Keep a constant eye on the milk. Try to increase or decrease the heat as required so that it thickens bit faster and also doesn't spill out while boiling.
  3. Once the milk is nicely thickened and reduced to 1/3rd of the portion,reduce heat .
  4. Add lemon juice. Mix well and let it simmer on low heat for about 30 seconds without stirring.
  5. After about 30 seconds, stir it. Remember to scrape the bottom and the sides of the pan too. Now you will see grainy texture getting formed. Increase the heat and cook for another 5 minutes.
  6. Add sugar and mix well.
  7. Once you add sugar you need to be careful because the milk splutters, so adjust the heat as and when necessary . Stir in between.
  8. When the mixture is completely dry and comes to binding consistency, add cardamom powder and mix well.
  9. Remove the mixture on a greased cake tray. Flatten it with your fingers or spoon and let it settle for at least 2 hours before cutting.
  10. After 2 hours, just loosen the sides using a knife and flip it over a plate or pan. I used my rectangular cake pan.
  11. Cut it into desired shape and serve.
