Urad Dal (Minapa Gullu) : 1 Bowl
Jaggery (Bellam) : 1 bowl
Sugar (panchadara) : 1 and 1/2 Bowl
Clarified Butter, Ghee (neyyi) : 1/2 Bowl
Step 1 : Mildly fry Urad Dal in low flame till golden colour. (The indication when it is fried is a good aroma and will be crispy if tasted). Let it cool after fried.
Step 2 : Blend the Urad Dal to a fine powder.
Step 3 : Add mashed Jaggery to it and blend again to fine powder.
