Ingredients For Filling


1 cup crumbled khoya/mawa also known as milk solids


1 teaspoon ghee also known as clarified butter


3 tablespoons coconut powder or grated coconut


3-4 tablespoons chocolate chips


4 tablespoons chopped roasted nuts i used a mix of cashews, pistachios and almonds


3-4 tablespoons granulated white sugar


1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon Powder


  • Method




In a pan, heat 1 teaspoon of ghee. Add crumbled khoya/mawa to it and saute for a minute or two.


Add coconut powder/grated coconut and cook till fragrant, around 2-3 minutes. Remove pan from heat.


Add chopped nuts and mix. I added nuts which were already roasted, if you are using raw nuts you would need to roast them in ghee before adding them to the mixture.


Now wait for 2-3 minutes and while the mixture is still little warm (but not extremely warm) add cinnamon powder.


Let it rest and cool down completely
