The following is the instruction of how to cook step by step in English
  1. Soak quality rice, ordinary rice and green gram separately in water overnight. Blend them separately in a blender next morning and it would give you thick creams.
  2. Leave these 3 kinds of creams to settle for 4 hours. It´s got to be soggy and becoming butters after 4 hours or more. Remove clear residual liquid on the top of their surfaces by using spoon. Be careful not to touch the butters with hands. It can be spoiled for doing so.
  3. Boil palm jaggery and let it cool.
  4. Put all the butters into one container with palm jaggery juice. Add salt and baking soda, and stir thoroughly.
