Again add 2 teaspoon of oil and keep stirring till the mixture rolls like a ball without sticking to the sides of the pan. If you wet you fingers with cold water and touch the mor kali, it should not stick to the fingers. If you feel sticky, stir the mixture in low flame for more time till it becomes non-sticky.
  7. Pour the mor kali mixture to a greased plate. Take a spoon and in the back of the spoon, grease it with oil. Use the back of the spoon to level the mor kali mixture in the greased plate. Allow it to cool and then cut into cubes and serve it warm!
  8. The easy and delicious Mor Kali is ready to serve!
