Updated: Mar 23, 2012, 12:00 PM IST

This is a simple home made food offered as naivedya (prasad).


1 cup Makhane (puffed lotus seeds) Pan-Roast and grind it.
1/2 cup Khurbuje ke beej (melon seeds) Pan-Roast and grind it.
1/2 cup Khoya (Roast in a pan till light brown in color)
(Grinded makhana, beej and roasted khoya)
2 cups Sugar
3/4 cup of Water


Grease the dish and keep it aside. Make sugar syrup, adding sugar and water. Let it boil for few minutes till it comes to 1 string consistency. Switch off the gas and add grinded mixture stir it and mix well. when it about to set, add khoya mix well and spread it in a greased dish.(or make ladoos).

When it cools down and all set, cut it in to squares. You can store it up to 2 weeks in air tight container. This is not a very fancy sweet, but still I have some good memories eating it with evening tea, while chatting with my family.
