For past few months I missed taking part in  ICC , I tried my best to post October month's Indian cooking challenge recipe , was held up with some work, again failed to post it on time ...So posting it now ... This month challenge was Majoon / Majun recipe shared by Vaishali .This sweet is sindhi dish and made specially in  winters

Ingredients needed : 
  •  Badam - 1/2 cup
  • Cashews - 1/2 cup
  • Pista - 1/4 cup
  • dry dates - 1/4 cup
  • Khus Khus - 1/4 cup
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Milk -  1.5 ltr
  • Unsweetened Khoya - 1 cup (See note below)
  • Ghee 
  • Elachi powder - little
    Homemade Unsweetened Khoya :
    • Milk - 2 ltrs.
     In a pressure cooker boil the milk and bring the flame to simmer and allow it to get  reduced to half the quantity ...and keep stirring it continuously till all the moisture gets evaporated ..Unsweetened khoya is ready ...

    Method for making Majoon : 

    Slightly crush the nuts ...chop dry dates and keep it ready. In a pressure cooker add milk and bring it to boil then add sugar allow it to reduce to half ..
    then add khus khus + dried dates + crushed nuts + unsweetened khoya mix everything well and allow it to cook well. Once the sweet gets thicker in consistency , keep stirring it continuously  and add ghee at this stage and continue cooking it in medium flame. Once done , switch off the flame and allow it cool completely and store it in a container ...and it stays good if kept in refrigerator for 3 - 6 months..
