02. Sugar - 2 kg
03. Egg white - 1
04. Yeast - 1½ tsp

Preparation
01. Squeeze and mash the grapes well.
02. Add all the other ingredients to it and store it in a ceramic jar (bharani).
03. For twenty one days, open the jar daily and stir it once with a ladle.

05. One or two days later, once again pour the entire wine into a basin.
