  • Now in a heavy botom pan ,take sugar and water.
  • Take water enough amount just enough to soak the sugar.
  • Let it boil till sugar dissolves into water.
  • Make a thick sugar syrup of 3 thread consistency .So to test the sugar syrup ,place a drop on the plate .The drop should be as it is i.e.; It should not spread.
