  5. Place it on medium heat and keep stirring until the sugar dissolves completely. Once the sugar has dissolved, keep stirring the solution and let it cook for about 2 minutes. Turn off the heat. Note that the mixture should be light syrup. Add in 1 lunch of salt and cardamom powder to the mixture. As I personally don't like cardamom flavour in cookies, I added 1 teaspoon vanilla essence..
  6. Now add in roasted semolina, soaked coconut and ghee to the sugar mixture. Switch on the flame, stir the mixture well to incorporate everything well..
  7. Continue to stir and cook for 2-3 minutes ot until the mixture forms a thick lump..

  14. After 20 minutes take out the dough from the refrigerator..
  15. Preheat oven at 180 degree C for 10 minutes..
  16. Take lime size portion of the dough, roll with your palm and slightly press to give a cookie shape..
