    • Water as needed
    • 2 cups of sugar
    • 2 cinnamon sticks
    • 2 cardamoms
    • 1 piece of bread ( large size)
    • 1 cup of powdered milk
    • 2 tablespoons of flour
    • 2 tablespoons of semolina ( washed and dried)
    • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
    • 1 egg
    • 2 tablespoons of ghee


    1. Heat 2 cups of water so that it is lukewarm.
    2. In a saucepan heat 5 cups of water with the sugar to make syrup on low heat. Add the cinnamon and cardamoms.
    3. Meanwhile, soak the bread piece in lukewarm water. Carefully and slowly lift the bread from the water and slightly squeeze it so that the water comes out.
    4. Place the bread in a dry bowl. Mix the powdered milk, flour, semolina, baking powder and egg. Make small balls out the mixture.
    5. Heat a frying pan with ghee and fry the balls by stirring continuously so that they do not stick to the pan.
    6. Stir the sugar syrup regularly every now and then to get a consistent thickness of the syrup-it should not be watery but also not very thick.
    7. Drop the fried balls in the syrup. Take the saucepan off the heat and put the lid on.
    8. Allow the fried balls or “lal mohan” mishti to soak in the syrup. Soak until the syrup becomes lukewarm.
    9. Serve
