  • Heat ghee in a small pot
  • Once the ghee is hot, add ajwain seeds and watch them sputter.
  • Add bajra flour (pearl millet flour) and roast it in ghee for 2-3 mins. You will start to smell the aroma of bajra roasting in ghee.
  • Add the jaggery, salt, ginger powder and water. Mix very very well to ensure that there are no millet flour lumps and the jaggery is completely dissolved in water.
  • Bring it to a boil and continue to cook on low heat for another 5 mins.
  • The raab is ready. Empty into serving glasses and add some chopped nuts (I used almonds and walnuts) on tops. Serve hot.
