Step 1: Preparation of Semolina
In a pan heat 1 tablespoon of ghee on medium heat. Once hot add the semolina and roast it stirring continuously till you get a nice aroma, this will take around 6-7 minutes. Please remember to keep stirring because semolina once hot can burn very quickly. You don’t want it to stick to the pan. Once roasted, set aside and let it cool down a bit.
Step 2: Roasting Cashewnuts
In another pan, heat 1 teaspoon of ghee on medium heat. Once hot, fry the cashews and raisins in it till nice golden brown.
Step 3: Blending Sugar and Cardamom
In a blender, grind together granulated sugar and cardamom seeds
Step 4: Mixing
Mix the grind sugar into the Semolina and nuts mixture.
Add 3 tablespoons of warm melted ghee and mix.
Also add 1-2 tablespoon of milk.
Step 5: Shaping
Take a small amount of mixture in your hand.
Press it with your hands and form a round shape of the size of a golf ball. If you are not able to form a round shape, add 1 more tablespoon of milk.
