Tips to keep in mind:

. Traditionally, these Tambittu are entirely bound by ghee and jaggery only. This improves their shelf life on the counter without refrigeration and also provides much-needed warmth during the colder months.

. If you would like to cut down on the amount of ghee used, replace it with an equal quantity of ghee and milk.

. If using milk, bring it to a boil along with ghee before adding jaggery.

. Also, note that using milk in making Tambittu means these will need to be refrigerated.
