    Nellika Murabba

    Nellika Murabba :

    Nellikka = 1 kg ( to be grated raw )

    Kalkandu Powder = 1 1/2 Kgs

    Ginger = 1/4 Kg ( to be cleaned removing the skin thoroughly and
    grated)

    Ellaichi = 25 gms ( powdered )

    Method :
    Take a heavy bottomed vessel or cooker. Mix the first three ingredients thoroughly and place it over fire.
    Allow to simmer stirring well. Let it come to one string consistency.Now add 25 gms elaichi powder and store in sterilised broad mouthed bottles as for Chavanprash. Allow to cool and place the lid.
    Murabba is ready.

    The quantity of the Kalkandu powder could be twice the quantity of the
    grated Nellikkai - Ginger mixture by measure.This is to help you to make small quantities.
