    Suggestions:

    • Roast the sesame seeds till they puff up and you see slight change in color. It takes 4 to 5 minutes to roast the sesame seeds. Over roasting the sesame seeds give them a bitter taste.
    • Also, roast the mawa until you see slight change in color and it gets fragrant.
    • If the gajak is little soft then keep it aside for 10 to 12 hours to set. It will get dry. But if the gajak is still soft then cook the gajak mixture again in the wok and stir continuously until it melts. This can take 2 minutes and then follow the same procedure to set the gajak.
