  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut

6. Then add 4 tbsp ghee in the flour.

7. Mix very well.

8. Add cashews. If adding almonds then you can roast them separately in a pan and then add.

9. Keep on stirring and roasting the panjiri mixture for 5 to 6 minutes more. Do check the taste of the whole wheat flour and it should feel cooked. There should not even be a slight rawness in the flour.

10. Switch off the flame. Keep the pan down and add powdered sugar in parts.

11. Mix very well.

12. Add the remaining amount of powdered sugar.

13. Mix the sugar very well.
