  1. Heat 2-3 tbsp Ghee in a Pan. Add Edible Gum in this hot Ghee. Edible Gum (Gondh) starts to puff up when fried and it imparts a wonderful flavor and a stickiness to a dish. Gondh is added in many dishes. Do check out our Belgavi Kunda recipe-one of the finest dessert that makes use of Edible gum
  2. Notice how the Edible Gum (Gondh) puffs up on frying (1-2 mins). Remove from Pan.
  3. Add 1-2 tsp Ghee in the pan and fry Lotus Seeds. We are using ½ cup lotus seeds. If you like lotus seeds, you can increase its quantity in this recipe. Fry until it becomes slightly brown in color and crisp in texture. In 2.5 mins Lotus Seeds become brown in color and crisp. Remove from Pan.

  5. Add 1-2 tbsp Ghee in the Pan. Add Coriander Seeds and fry on low heat. In about 5-6 mins, Coriander Seeds are well roasted-it changes its color and a pleasant aroma emanates from it. Remove from Pan.
  6. Now, finally we will roast dry coconut. I am not using any more Ghee. We will roast until it becomes just crisp. Do not brown it. Roast for 1 min. Remove from Pan.
  7. Allow all the roasted ingredients to cool down and then will we grind it one by one. Meanwhile, let's grind Sugar.
