Ingredients

250 gm cashew nuts

240 gm (1 cup) milk

250 gm (1 cup) sugar

Cardamom powder

Few silver leaves – for decoration (optional)

Ghee or oil – Just for greasing

Kewra essence – 4-5 drops

Method:

Blend cashews and milk in a blender to a fine paste.

Mix paste and sugar and cook over low heat stirring till the sugar dissolves, then bring to a boil.

Continue stirring over medium heat, till the mixture leaves the sides of the pan, and becomes a dough like paste.

Remove from heat and when cool enough to handle, roll it on to a greased surface, with a greased rolling pin (roll before it cools).

Roll to 1/4cm / 1/8″ thickness. Now cover with the silver leaf and leave to cool, then cut into diamond shaped pieces.
