Boil water, then add half of required sugar and then add Rava. After stirring and making it uniform without lumps, add remaining sugar. For final touch add grated panneer and badam saffron.

My friend made this for a company halloween party. He made it with orange food coloring. Raisins added the black coloring. It was GREAT. For a sweet light treat or side dish, this is a good choice.
