    1. Grate khoya or crumble to fine even crumbs. Add sugar, mix well.
    2. Put in a heavy pan, cooking, on slow flame.

    9. Keep the medium portion white.
    10. Make 20 small balls of green portion.
    11. Divide white portion into 20 parts, cover over green ball and make a bigger ball.
    12. Repeat by dividing orange into 20 portions, similarly covering over white ones.
    13. The end result will be 20 orange coloured ladoos.
    14. Chill well, cut each neatly into two halves with a sharp knife.
    15. Each half will look like three coloured concentric circles, with green in centre.
    16. Place one or two slivers over pistachios in centre, decoratively.
    17. Store carefully in airtight wide shallow container.
