  • Crumble or mash the Chenna with hand. It should be crumbly, yet little moist.
  • Knead the crumbled Cheena by hand, until it comes together and turns into dough.
  • Now, divide the kneaded dough into 12 equal portions and make a small sized ball of each portion.
  • Slightly press it between your palms to flatten it and turn into round Pattie.
  • Now, to prepare sugar syrup, add sugar in the 4 cups of water. Start to heat over the medium flame.
