How to make Musk Melon Seeds Chikki
Put Miggi on plate and check if there is any dirt or peel in them. Pour Ghee in a pan(kadhai) and heat, put Miggi in Ghee and fry on a low flame. If seeds pops out of the pan while frying then cover the pan holding the lid in one hand. Stir the seeds using a spoon with the other hand, once seeds turn pink take them out on a plate.
To make Chashni, put sugar and water in a pan and heat. After it comes to boil put 1 tbsp milk and boil then remove the dirty froth which appears on the sugar. Allow the Chashni to boil for 3-4 minutes. Now check the texture of the Chashni. Put one drop of Chashni in a bowl and after it cools off place it on your finger. Now try to stick the drop between your thumb and index finger. While separating the fingers a thread looking substance should come out of Chashni. If you feel that there are no threads coming from the Chashni then cook for another 2-3 minutes. Now put roasted seeds in the Chashni and mix them well with a ladle.
Apply Ghee on a plate and spread the seeds mixed with Chashni on it. Solidify 1/2 inch thick layer of Pag. Pag will turn solid in 15-20 minutes. Cut Pag into squares or polygon shaped pieces and eat.
