1/4 tsp cardamom powder
1 2/3 cup ground cashew nut powder
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 tbs pistachios (roughly ground for decorating)
1/2 tsp unsalted butter or clarified butter (ghee)
Soak the cashew powder in 1/4 cup milk for 10 minutes.
Pour the sugar into a non stick pan and add the remaining 1/4 cup milk to this and stir on medium heat until the sugar dissolves and solution starts boiling.
Add the cardamom powder and cashew mixture into this sugar solution and continue to stir on medium heat until the mixture becomes thick and doughy.
Let the mixture cool for about 5-10 minutes and then knead it into a soft dough with the butter.
Roll the dough out on butter paper to approximately 1/4 " thickness. Cut into squares, decorate with the pistachio and serve.
Tip: Cashews can be ground in small batches in a coffee or nut grinder.
