Ingredients
  • 1 cup CASHEW NUTS RAW
  • 0.50 cup SUGARS GRANULATED
  • 0.25 cup WATER
  • 0.50 tsp ROSE WATER
  • 1 tsp MILK
Instructions
  1. Powder the cashews using a blender (avoid grinding the cashews for a long time just pulse at high speed once or twice because cashews ooze out oil when grinding and forms a lump).

  2. In a pan add sugar, water and bring to a vigorous boiling. Reduce the heat to low, add rose water (optional), powdered cashews and mix well. Cook until the cashew mixture becomes thick but at the same time, it should be slightly gooey consistency. 

  3. Allow to cool until warm enough to handle with your hand. Add a tsp of milk and knead a soft and firm dough.

  4. Place the dough on a parchment paper and roll them into a thick circle using a rolling pin. Cut into squares or diamond shapes and serve or store in a refrigerator.
