This is a long process as the heat is low medium.

Meanwhile add ghee /oil to another pan and lightly fry the shimai until they turn deep brown.

When you think it is the desired consistency add the sugar.Winter and Nalen Gur a good combo for this time of the year...can add this gur (jiggery) to the payesh for the distinctive flavour of the gur.
