2 cups kaju (cashew nuts); soaked into warm water for at least 2 hours,
1 cup sugar,
1 tbsp ghee,
1 tsp elaichi (green cardamom); powdered,
Silver varak or sliced dry fruits to decorate.
Grind the cashew nuts with little water into a smooth and thick paste. In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar and thick syrup of 2 thread consistency. Add the cashew nut paste to this syrup and stir continuously on a low flame. To this add ghee. Cook till the mixture starts leaving the sides of the pan. Then remove from flame and pour it into a greased plate. Use a greased rolling pin to spread it evenly. Decorate with siver varak or dry fruits and let it cool. Later cut into katlis (kite shape) or desired shape pieces.
