  • 1 cup Besan (Chickpea flour)
  • 1 cup Ghee
  • 3 cups Sugar
  • ½ cup Cashews
  • ½ cup Almonds
  • 1 cup Milk
  • ½ tsp Cardamom Ground


  • Grind almonds and cashews to a fine powder.
  • Grease a plate with ghee and set it aside,
  • Combine besan, ghee, sugar, milk and the nuts mixture in a wide nonstick pan. Cook on medium flame, mixing frequently. Sugar will melt and the mixture will get liquidy initially and starts to thicken as it cooks.
  • Once the mixture starts to thicken, then stir continuously until the mixture starts to leave the sides of the pan. The whole process takes about 25-30 minutes depending on the quantity of ingredients you are making.
  • Add ground cardamom and mix well.
  • Pour the mixture on the greased plate and spread into an even layer with the back of a wide spoon. Let cool before cutting into diamonds or squares.
  • These store well in an airtight container for up to 7-10 days.
