    • Heat ghee in a kadhai, add makhanas, and roast till golden or until crispy. Once it’s crispy and not chewy, that’s the right stage. Switch off and cool down. Transfer to a mixer jar and grind it to a fine powder.
    • In another mixing bowl take all other ingredients (except oil) along with makhana powder.
    • The first mix well with a spoon, then add water and knead it to a soft pliable dough. Allow it to rest for 15 mins at least. Then knead again and form a ball.
