Step 1
Soaking the mixed dry fruits

Once the ghee is hot, add the whole wheat flour (atta) to the pan.

Step 4
Stir continuously for 10-15 minutes

Stir continuously and roast the flour until it turns golden brown and releases a nutty aroma. This process may take around 10-15 minutes. Be careful not to burn the flour. Once roasted, remove the pan from heat and set it aside.
