  • 1 cup Milk
  • Rose Water
  • 2 tbsp Ghee
  • cup Maida
  • 250 gm Sugar
  • 1 cup Water
  • 250 gm Khoya
  • Oil for deep frying
  • A pinch of Baking powder


  1. Mix melted ghee with maida using finger tips to blend evenly.
  2. Now mix baking powder with little milk.
  3. Crumble khoya and mix with maida. Knead like a thick chapatti dough, sprinkling just required milk. Mix well so that the dough doesn't break while making balls.
  4. Make small balls and keep under a wet cloth.
  5. Mix sugar, water and heat till sugar melts, stirring constantly. Boil till syrup becomes sticky.
  6. Add rose water after removing from fire.

Tip: To prevent the milk kheer for sticking to the bottom of the vessel, drop a coin in the vessel while the kheer is boiling.
