Treat Tuttha to prepare Shodhitha Tuttha and keep aside for addition during snehapaka.

Heat for 3 h with constant stirring maintaining the temperature between 500 and 900 during the first hour of heating. Stop heating and allow to stand overnight.
Start heating next day, observe the boiling mixture for subsidence of froth and constantly check the Kalka for the sign of varti breaking down into pieces on attempting to form a varti (khara paka lakshana). Expose the varti to flame and confirm the absence of crackling sound indicating absence of moisture. Stop heating when the kalka breaks down into pieces on attempting to form a varti and the froth subsides. Filter while hot (about 800) through a muslin cloth. Add small pieces of Siktha, filter through muslin cloth and allow to cool. Pack it in tightly closed glass containers to protect from light and moisture.
