  1. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture starts to pull away from the sides of the pan. Now add the warmed ghee, about 2 Tablespoons at a time, stirring constantly. The mixture will be fluffy. Turn the contents of the saucepan into a fine strainer for a few minutes to drain out the extra ghee. When there is only a slow drip of ghee from the strainer, turn the mixture out onto paper towels (to absorb the remaining ghee), and while still warm, shape into a 7 1/2″ round patty 3/4″ thick; slice into 1″ diamonds. Let cool.

  2. This dessert can be kept in the freezer or in an airtight plastic container in pantry.
