3 cups - fine Wheat flour

1 cup - fine semolina (suji)

2 cups - grated Jaggery (gur)

2 tbsp Ghee

1 tbsp peppercorns

2 cups - Milk

1 Lime

1 tbsp - Curd

Pinch each of salt and soda.


  1. Place the flour & the semolina in a dekchi and mix them with milk, curd, jaggery and a pinch of salt.
  2. Beat for at least for 5 to 7 minutes so that the mixture becomes light and fluffy.
  3. Pound the peppercorns coarsely and add to the mixture.
  4. Heat 2 tbsp of ghee and pour over the mixture.
  5. Mix well, cover the dekchi and let it stand for 7-8 hours in a warm place.
