Add 1/4 cup water to the milk and mix the maida and the coloring agent in it.
Beat to mix evenly into a smooth batter. Set aside for 1/2 hour.
Heat up the sugar along with 1/4 cup water in a heavy bottomed vessel.
Let the sugar dissolve completely and just start to thicken.
Mix the prepared batter, cardamom and 1/2 of the ghee along with the sugar syrup and continue to heat up.
