  • 1/2 cup water
  • Kewra essence (You can replace it with saffron if you like)
  • Ghee for greasing


  1. Powder the cashews in a mixer in one go within seconds else cashews may leave oil. Remember the cashews should be at the room temperature.
  2. If there are big particles you can sieve the cashew flour (I didn’t)
  3. Heat up the water in the pan and add sugar to it.
  4. Before it comes to boil and once the sugar dissolves, add cashew powder
  5. Keeping minimum flame, stir in the mixture
  6. Add kewra essence
  7. Mixture will start coming together as a dough but it will still be loose
  8. Dip your finger in water and try to take a pea size mixture and see if you are able to make a ball. If you are, then the mixture is done.
  9. Cool down the mixture
  10. Form a dough
  11. Take 2 parchment papers and put the dough ball between them20841203_10154581361685764_8373571850992922068_n
  12. Roll it with the rolling pin
  13. Keep the thickness as much as you like (I like it thin)
  14. Once done, cut it into diamond shaped pieces and store it in the container.
