After 45 mins- 1 hour, remove the chenna mix on a clean working surface. Make sure the chenna is not too wet and not too dry.
Start kneading the chenna with the heel of your palm.
We need to smoothen out the chenna to make softballs.
This process will take around 8-10 minutes.
The mixture is done kneading when you are able to get a soft smooth dough, without any lumps.
Now take approximately 1 Ltr water and add around 75-80 gms (one-fourth of total) in the water.
If using saffron, add it now.
Bring the water to boil.
In the meantime divide the dough into equal size balls. Around 2 cm in diameter. Size can be adjusted as needed and depending on your pan or cooker size.
Press the balls in between your hand so that it the mixture come together and it helps to make a tight ball.
Press and add 1-2 seeds of cardamom. (This step is optional)
Now roll them lightly in between your palms to make a smooth and a crack-free ball.
Roll the remaining balls.
