  • Drain the water from the cooked dal and mash them using masher or processor.
  • Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed pan and add the mashed dal.
  • Saute for 5 - 10 minute till the raw smell goes off.
  • Cook till the ghee starts separating from the dal.
  • Now add milk little by little and stir it continuous.
