Clean the rice and soak them in water. Pour water in a pan and add sugar in it to make sugar syrup. Now heat ghee in a cauldron and roast cinnamon and cloves in it. Then add rice in the mix and keep adding water as per the need until the rice is cooked and water is almost evaporated. Then add sugar syrup in the rice and half the “khoya” with few drops of “kewra” essence. Pour Fruiti-O Orange Nectar in it and mix it well. Cover it with a lid and leave the rice to dry again.
