  4. Heat second cup of ghee and keep aside.
  5. Add besan and ghee mixture (from step 2) to gently boiling syrup and mix well, stirring all the time to avoid lumps from forming.

  8. Pour quickly on the greased tray and shake the tray to distribute it evenly.
  9. After 5-10 minutes, when it has set, cut into squares of the size you prefer.
  10. Blot off ghee on kitchen paper, allow to cool fully and store in an air tight box.
