- One and half litres of Milk
- One cup Sugar
- Two tbs of Ghee
- A pinch of Cardamom powder
- A pinch of Edible camphor
- Take a thick bottomed vessel or pan (traditionally Uruli) and pour the milk and heat on a slow flame.
- Keep stirring very often otherwise it will stick to the bottom and heat on slow flame else it will become brown in colour. Since it takes a long time, you can start when you are beginning to cook and monitor along with your other cooking. (Just be careful the mustard seeds do not crackle and jump in to the milk!)
- When it really becomes thick and sticky add powdered sugar and one tbs of ghee.
- After adding sugar it becomes a little watery.Heat it until it becomes thick and add the cardamom powder and camphor powder and other tbs of ghee. Transfer in to a bowl after it gets cool a bit.

General guidelines for healthier food – Both body and mind:
- One should be thinking about Perumal (Nama Smaranam) while cooking, and the purpose should be to offer the preparation to Him.
- Once the food is prepared, it should be offered to Perumal first. While offering, one should make sure that the food is neither too hot nor cold. It should be offered with love and affection.
- Please do not offer either pre-cooked food bought from outside or any pre-consumed food.
- Please follow thiruvaradanam kramam as instructed by your respective acharya. (http://anudinam.org/2012/03/08/bhagavad-tiruvaradhanam/)
- Follow ahara niyamam as much as possible. Atleast make sure that onion and garlic are not used at all.(http://anudinam.org/2012/06/11/srivaishnava-ahara-niyamam/)
- Please ensure that food which are not prasadams are not consumed.
