Video Procedure:


1. Sugar - 1 kg

2. Milk - 2 tbsp

3. Curds - 1 tbsp

4. Lemon - 1 no.

5. Wooden Moulds - Different shapes of your choice.


1. Soak Sugar with water Just before 1 hour to prepare. Add water upto the level of sugar (Make sure not to add more water, as it becomes too syrupy...)

2. Dissolve sugar and bring it to boil, add 1 tbsp of milk, boil for 1- 2 minutes, you can notice bubbles, immediately filter the solution with a muslin cloth.

3. Boil the filtered solution for few seconds and add 1 tbsp of curds, and repeat the same as step 2.

4. Lastly boil the filtered solution and add milk as per step 2 and you get final filtered solution. Adding milk, curds and filtering with muslin cloths helps to remove the impurities and also gives a good white color.

5. The Wooden Moulds needs to be soaked in water for 1/2 hour before starting. Clean with a white cloth so that water gets dried. moulds must be damp so that the figurines loosen up easily when they are ready to be removed. Moulds are two wooden slabs with various shaped carved into them, each half a mirror reflection of the other.
