Soak the dals overnight and grind into a coarse thick paste. Heat ghee in a non-stick pan and fry the dal paste on a low flame, stirring constantly. It should not be over-fried.
Add milk and powdered sugar and mix. Now add grated dry coconut and cardamom powder and keep on stirring till the mixture becomes thick and leaves the sides of the pan. Take off the fire and cool. Make balls of the mixture. Flatten them between the palms and shape them into stars.
Garnish them with sliced almonds and peeled melon seeds.
