Chashni is also known by various other names liquid syrup, sugar water and many more in different regions. ‘Chashni’ word is more prominently used in north India and hence we have used this name for this article.

It is very simple and easy to make. Generally there are two levels of thickness in sugar syrup measured by its strings.

We are making a 1 string thick sugar syrup. The other one i.e. 2 string thick can be made by increasing the thickness of the syrup by cooking it for longer time.
