BRIEF COOKING PROCESS :
Preparation : Grease a tray with desi ghee or use a parchment paper. Sieve semolina (suji) two times. Grate the dried coconut, if you want to add it.
Roasting : Now take a pan and turn on the gas to medium flame. Put white sesame seeds into the pan. Roast the sesame seeds. Keep stirring it so that it roast evenly and does not burn in bottom of the pan. It will take 3-4 minutes. When the seeds are fully toasted, they will turn golden in color and become fragrant. Roasted seeds should be much nuttier in taste as comparison to raw seeds. When done, transfer the roasted seeds in a bowl and keep it aside. Now roast semolina but with clarified butter (desi ghee). For that, take a pan and turn on the gas to medium flame. Add 4 tbsp clarified butter(desi ghee) to it and heat it. When heated, add semolina(Suji) to it. Keep stirring it with spatula and make sure there are no dry lumps of semolina(Suji). Do not let it brown. Roast it till it turns golden in color and becomes aromatic. When done, turn off the gas and transfer the roasted semolina to bowl.
Prepare Sugar-syrup/Chashni : Take a pan and turn on the gas. Set the flame to low and put sugar in it. Add water to it and let the sugar immersed in water completely. Now let the water and sugar boil. Stir it occasionally until sugar dissolves and . When it started boiling, do not over stir it as it will affect the consistency of syrup. At 1st stage, sugar gets a shine. At second stage, it will become sticky and little thick. You can check stickiness of sugar with ladle or with your forefingers.
When your syrup reached to the stage of stickiness, be alert because half-string consistency can take take place anytime. To check the string consistency of syrup, dip the spatula in the syrup and lift it out, now touch the syrup with forefinger and slide it with your thumb, a wire type thread (tar)will appear and if it cuts off immediately, this stage is known as half-string syrup. Similarly, while testing the consistency of syrup, if 1 long thick string (tar) formed up, it will be known as one string syrup. If 3 strings forms up, it will be known as 3 string syrup and that is the correct stage to add the ingredients in it. Now immediately add roasted sesame seeds(til) and roasted semolina (suji) to it. Mix it thoroughly and steadily on medium flame. Now add 2 tbsp desi ghee to the mixture and mix it well. Turn off the flame and pour the mixture in to the greased tray. Spread it evenly and keep it aside and covered up to 2-3 hours until it gets cool down completely.Now cut into desired shape with the help of knife.
