- Take milk in a thick bottom vessel and start heating it over low flame. I added 2 stainless steel spoons to it, to prevent burning of milk at the bottom of the pan. A Tip given by experienced Lataji of Flavors n Taste, which i follow till date while making Milk-based desserts.
- As the milk, starts boiling add 4 tablespoons of sugar and keep on simmering till the volume is reduced to little less than half. Scrap down the sides and stir well frequently.
- Take the remaining sugar with 2 tablespoons of water and heat till the sugar melts and attains a golden brown color
- Gradually add the molten sugar over the milk and boil for another 15 minutes over low flame.
