- Add the toasted sesame seeds to the syrup, and stir well. Let it cool down a little. or pour this mixture into a parchment paper.
- When the temperature cools down to a state where the hand can withstand the heat, grease a little ghee on the palm of your hand, pick up a handful of the mixture and make small even sized balls using the hand. Repeat with the remaining mixture .
