  1. Heat the ghee in a non stick wok. Add moong dal paste  and fry on high heat for two minutes. I have used a non stick wok because lentil paste is sticky - so if you use an iron wok (kadhai) the lentil paste will be difficult to fry and you will have to add more ghee.

You can also use khoya/ mawa in this Burfi , in that case cut the amount of milk.
