Cooking Tips

  • Cook over low flame to avoid sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  • Chopped nuts and cardamom powder can be added.
  • The time to form the mixture into a dough or single mass varies from 3 to 10 minutes. It depends on a pan, flame and the milk powder used.
  • Do not overcook. Remove the dough from the pan once it forms a single mass. If you cook it too long, it will become hard.
