Recipe by Charishma_Ramchandani
Two-thread consistency is when a two threads are formed (and do not break) when your forefinger and your thumb are pulled apart gently. This stage is also called the soft ball stage - when a drop of syrup of this consistency is dropped into a bowl of cold water, it forms a soft ball. I found this on indianfood.com
