  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 tbsp of ghee/clarified butter
  • 2 tsp of lime juice


  • In a pan, boil the milk untill it reduces by half, keep stiring to make sure you don't burn the bottom of the pan. It will take some time (around 20- 30 mins)
  • Add the lime juice to make the milk separate.
  • Again keep stirring till most of the water is evaporated and it is semi-solid. This will take another 15 min.
