Ingredients of Bhang Ke Vade:

|Cardamom powder||1/2 tablespoon|
|Whole peppercorns||1 teaspoon|
|Dried or fresh rose petals||1/4 cup|
Making Bhang Ke Vade
Soak sugar in a half-liter of water and keep it aside. Wash all the dry ingredients, excluding cardamom powder carefully. Soak all in 2 cups of water and keep it aside too. When at least 2 hours pass for both, grind all the soaked ingredients except sugar to make a very fine paste. Then add the remaining water into it.
Tie a piece of strong muslin cloth over a deep vessel to be used as a strainer. Put the mixture into it and press with both of your hands. So that all the liquid drains out. Repeat the process and add a little of the remaining water each time you do it. Keep on repeating the process until the mixture becomes dry and like a husk.
Now add sugar, rose water, cardamom powder, and milk into the extracted liquid. Chill it for at least an hour then serve.
