Roast the lotus seeds in clarified butter until crisp. It takes around 2 minutes. I have separated 1 cup to crushed it. Pulse the seeds instead of blend into powder.
If you are not using milkmaid then boil the milk around 30 minutes. Then add roasted seeds along with all the ingredients.
Boil them until thick. I have used milkmaid and dont add sugar. But you can more sugar of your taste and never forget to add salt which will enhance the taste of sweetness.
