instrcutions for making khurak
Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan , be sure to take the big one,(i would suggest you if you are trying for first time just take half measures of all ingredients and then try, they will be plenty) as it has to contain all the ingredients.
Add cardamom powder and wheat flour to it,( if you find that it is difficult to stir the mixture you can add some ghee at this time, if you are easy than its ok.,)  on a medium heat roast wheat flour continuously stirring till it is golden in color this will take approx 20-25 minutes or more( you have to be patient while roasting , ). Add poppy  muskmelon seeds and  grated coconut and roast again for just 3-4 minutes, add dry fruits powder, gum powder mix well and stir once, simmer the flame, carefully add sugar syrup to it, at this stage temperature of mixture is very high so it can splutter, mix well till it starts to leave the sides of pan.
Quickly pour it on greased thalis, flatten it with the help of spatula, after 5 minutes with the help of knife make marks on it. Let is cool completely as it sets. Finally cut the pieces and store in a container.


Your suggestions are valuable to me.
