30 mins

Ingredients:

Gram Flour
- 1 Cup
 
  Water - ½ Cup
 
 Sugar - 1 ½ Cup
 
  Water - 1 Cup (for the syrup)
 
 Cardamom Powder - 1 tsp

  Perforated spoon/ ladle
 
  Candy thermometer - this is used to measure the temperature of the sugar syrup

• Then reduce the heat to low until the temperature of the Syrup has reached to 220deg on Candy thermometer.

Testimonial:

"Dear Spices of India, Ordered several items on Saturday, delivered on Tuesday as promised. Very good service, very prompt. Without any doubt, cheaper than buying in any supermarket, and in most cases, cheaper than my local stores. I shall buy my spices from Spices of India from now on, and can recommend this company to one and all. Well done!"
