  • 2 to 3 tablespoons fresh lemon or lime juice
  • Boora cheeni (fine-grained caster sugar), as needed


  1. Dry roast the jeera on low heat until the seeds become aromatic and turn light brown in colour; then allow them to cool down. Grind the cooled jeera coarsely.
  2. To the ground jeera add the amchur powder, sendha namak, kala namak and black pepper powder. Blend in a mixer until just mixed.
  3. Add the ground sugar and mix until well combined.
  4. Add in lemon juice one tablespoon at a time and mix well until the mixture forms a stiff dough.
  5. Shape small round golis (candies) from the dough and roll them in the boora cheeni until they are well coated. Transfer to a plate.
