  4. Reduce the heat and add 2 teaspoons of ghee.
  5. Stir, till the flour and ghee has completely blended with the syrup.
  6. Continue to stir and keep adding ghee 1tsp at a time till the mixture changes color and texture. At one point, you will observe that the mixture is not able to absorb any more ghee. Also, the whole mixture becomes porous and starts leaving the edges of the vessel.
