    • If you add edible gum to medium or very hot oil then, then the edible doesn’t puff up nicely. If you want the edible gum to puff up, then the ghee should be less hot.
    • White pepper powder enhances the flavor of the pag. You can add black pepper to balance the sweetness.
    • Put markings on the pag. If you do not mark it and it cools, then it would not cut easily , you will need to break it.

We usually refer these kind of sweets recipes as ‘Pak’,which simply means made of dried fruits,or all healthful ingredients..I am writing this just for exchange of information! I may be wrong,I just wanted to find out.Thanks a lot for presenting very useful cooking videos.
