big pinch of cardamom powder
Heat 2 tbsp ghee in a small pan. Add in the cashewnuts and roast until it turns golden brown. Keep aside
In a microwave safe bowl, combine cornflour, sugar and water until lump free. Add in the cardamom and food colouring. Mix to combine.
Microwave for 6 mins. After every two mins remove the bowl out, give a stir using spoon and put it back for remaining time. (Refer my video for easy understanding)
After the first 6 mins, add in the roasted cashewnuts and the remaining 1 tbsp ghee. Mix to combine.
Again microwave for 6 minutes. This time, remove the bowl out after 3 mins, stir and put it back.
After 6 mins remove the bowl out, give a final stir and microwave for a final 6 mins.
Once done, pour into a tin or plate that is greased with ghee and allow it to cool for 10-15 mins. Slice them up. Garnish with chopped nuts and these are ready to serve.
