Prep Time5 minsCook Time25 minsTotal Time30 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 cups semolina (Suji)
  • 1 cup gram flour (Besan)
  • 2 cups thick cream (Malai)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder (substitute with a few drops of khewra essence)

Method

  1. Grease a large cookie sheet and set aside for later.

  2. Combine two cups of semolina and one cup of gram flour in a medium sized pot. Place over low heat and lightly toast until the color changes slightly towards a golden brown.   You should be able to smell the aroma of the semolina.

  3. While your dry ingredients are toasting, combine two cups of thick cream, two cups of sugar and 1/4 tsp of cardamom powder in a saucepan. Put this on a low flame, stirring until the mixture comes to a boil and the sugar dissolves completely.

  4. When the cream and sugar mixture has boiled until the sugar has dissolved completely, pour it into the dry ingredients. Quickly, but thoroughly combine the wet and dry ingredients together.  Pour this mixture onto the greased cookie sheet and spread evenly. Use a greased spatula to smooth it out.

  5. Allow to cool and firm up a bit until you can easily cut it. Cut in squares or diagonally in diamonds.
