2.Start with boiling the parwal in a vessel filled with 4 cups of water for 4 minutes. 4 minutes later, turn off the flame. Cover and keep the parwal drenched for 5 minutes. Afterward, drain out them on a strainer placed over a bowl.

3.For sugar syrup, simmer sugar and 1 cup of water in a vessel until the sugar dissolves completely. As the sugar gets dissolved completely, drop the parwal and cook them till their colour changes slightly. Thereafter, turn off the flame, cover and leave the parwal for 1 hour.

4.In the meantime, roast the mawa in a pan until the colour changes slightly. Then transfer the mawa on a plate and thoroughly mix almond powder and powdered sugar in slightly warm mawa.
