  1. Hi ,

    The recipe looks amazing and pretty simple.. but i am not sure i get the one thread consistency.. can you help me a bit with this

    Thanks

    1. Thanks Rashmi. You can check the sugar syrup consistency by following this process. Boil the sugar into water at high flame, when it starts boiling, bring the flame to medium. At regular interval take a couple of drops of sugar syrup in a small plate, dip your index finger and rub the syrup using your thumb. then separate your index finger with thumb and you would see a small thread between them. If there is only one thread formed, then it’s one thread consistency. As you keep boiling more you would see number of threads would increase. Yep, needs some practice to find out.

    1. Milk mawa powder is nothing but khoya in powder form. Its generally available in Indian grocery store. Deep brand milk mawa powder is available online as well.
