Recipe By Naiya Sheth : Learn how to make Magas. This is a traditional Indian sweet. Traditionally it is made on flame. But it takes lots of time and efforts. So we are making it in microwave. It is made from gram flour. To make it more easy and quick I use combination of fine and coarse gram flour.
