Keep heat in low flame and start preparing second layer. Take another container, make syrup in the same way, add khoya/ all purpose flour mixture, stir well. Do not add colour to this layer.
The first layer will be ready by now. Remove from gas, stir briskly and transfer to a greased plate. Spread evenly. By this time second layer will be almost ready.
Again keep the heat in slow medium and start making the third layer. Stir briskly and spread the second layer on the first layer and press well. This layer should be softer than the first and third layer.
By this time the third layer will be almost ready. Stir briskly and transfer the contents on the second layer. Now press the layers properly so that all layers stick together firmly.
After a wait for around 20 minutes cut them into pieces using a sharp knife.
Remove the pieces carefully, with all the layers intact when still warm.
