heat a pan and then add 1 tbsp ghee.

on a low to medium flame, with frequent stirring roast the seviyan till they
become golden. since i used pre roasted seviyan, i didn't have to roast the
seviyan much. however, if you use seviyan which is not roasted, then you will
need to roast for some more time.
add all the chopped dry fruits and raisins. stir them nicely.
lower the flame and pour 2 cups of milk. instead of milk you can also add
stir and mix very well. then continue to stir for 2 to 3 minutes.

the mixture will start thickening and the seviyan will also begin to absorb
milk. when all the milk has been absorbed, switch off the gas.
