Pippali (in image) powder: 100 g
Ghee: 400 g
Water: 1.6 litres
Mix all ingredients in a thick bottom steel pot of about 4 L capacity. Cook on low flame with constant stirring to avoid burning and getting stuck to the bottom. Cook till the sputtering stops indicating complete evaporation of water. At this stage the mixture leaves the bottom and sides of the pot. This might take more than an hour. After naturally cooling, filter through a muslin cloth and store in a moisture-free airtight (preferably glass or porcelain) container for up to a year.
