Method
Take khova in a non stick deep pan. Fry it over medium heat for a minute.

Now add saffron milk and sugar and stir well. Cook over medium heat. The mixture will liquify intially and as you cook it will start thickening. Keep stirring otherwise it will catch to the bottom of the pan. This step will take almost half an hour.

Once the mixture thickens transfer it onto a plate. Let it cool a bit. Add rose petals. When it is warm enough for you to handle it, grease your palms with ghee and knead the mixture well.
