  • 1 cup rava /semolina
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1/4 cup besan
  • 1/4 cup mawa
  • 3/4 cup ghee + 2 tbsp
  • Nuts and rose petals for garnish


  • Grease a tray and set aside.
  • Pour ¼ cup ghee to a heavy bottom pan and heat it on a medium flame.
  • Add Rava and saute for 2 mins until it blends well with ghee.
  • Then add besan and roast them together until a nice aroma comes out. Keep stirring constantly to prevent burning. Make sure the besan doesn’t get discoloured.
  • Add mawa, coconut, sugar, and milk.
  • Simmer the flame for a while and mix everything to prevent lumps.
  • Begin to cook on a medium heat stirring often. The mixture turns gooey while the sugar melts and begins to bubble up.
  • When the mixture thickens add ¼ cup of ghee and cardamom powder, stirring till the ghee is absorbed.
  • Cook on a low flame until the mixture thickens completely and the mixture begins to leave the pan slightly.
  • Add 2 tbsp ghee and stir well until it is absorbed and the pan starts leaving sides.
  • Quickly transfer to a greased tray.
  • Level with a spatula and garnish with pistachios and rose petals.
  • Let cool slightly. Cut into pieces.
  • Cool completely to store.
