Take the sweet corn and make a fine powder out of it.
In a pan heat ghee and roast the corn powder until slightly golden brown.
Add 1 cup milk and let it cook for 5 minutes. If you feel the milk has been soaked up, use more milk.
The consistency should be soft like a halwa. Not dry, not liquidy. Adjust milk according to this.
Add sugar and let it cook for another 2 mins.
Sprinkle cardamom powder and take off the heat.
Garnish with raisins, nuts, and Kesar strands. Serve hot.
