    Afterwards, take a pan and put it over medium flame and heat ghee in it. Once the ghee is hot enough, add the ground dal paste and keep stirring. When the paste has absorbed the ghee, add milk in it and cook for some time. You can also use khoya instead of milk for better taste. In case you are using khoya, cook for 4-5 minutes; however, if you are using milk, you will have to wait till it becomes thick like a cream. Also, you can add some almond paste in the mixture if you want to make it more creamy.
