Our blog's first anniversary and Seven cups

Dear fellow bloggers. Today is our blog's first anniversary. It has been a exciting journey into the blogging world so far and we thank all our fellow bloggers and well wishers who have supported us throughout and made blogging a happy experience. Hope we get more and more support from all of you in future as well. Happy blogging!!!

We are celebrating this happy occasion by preparing Seven cups. The name seven cup has been coined because it has 7 cups of ingredients.My mom makes wonderful sweets especially her seven cups always turn out perfect. She is here now, she made this delicious treat. Here is the recipe for you all to try and enjoy!

Besan (gram flour) - 1 cup
Refined Oil / Ghee - 1 cup
Freshly scraped or dessicated coconut - 1 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Sugar - 3 cups

Grease a plate/pan(or a deep dish) with ghee and keep aside.
Fry besan in abt 1 tbsp of ghee till you get a nice aroma.
Combine the rest of the ingredients and place on a medium-low heat constantly stirring.
Cook until the mixture thickens and leaves the sides of the pan. This might take about 15-20 min.
Immediately transfer the contents to the greased plate/pan.
Once the gram flour is aromatic, tip the contents of the bowl into a wok. Keeping the flame low at all times, constantly keep stirring the contents till reduced to nearly half. For the quantities specified, this takes 15-17 minutes.
At the end of 15 minutes, immediately transfer the contents of the wok onto the greased baking sheet.
Press evenly and cut into desired shape.

Preparation Time: 30 mins
