  • Marinate for half an hour.
  • Heat the ghee and add cardamoms, cloves and cinnamon.
  • Add sliced onions and fry to a golden brown.
  • Remove the pan from the fire.

  • Add one cup water.
  • Cover and cook on medium heat.
  • When tender and very little water remains, put on dim till water dries up and only ghee remains.
