Saffron Cashew Halwa

Ingredients (Translation)

1 cup cashews
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup ghee
1/4 tsp elaichi powder
Few strands of saffron

Soak the cashews in hot water for about 2 hours. Grind to a fine paste.

Soak the saffron in a little milk for some time.

In a nonstick pan, add the paste, sugar, saffron, elaichi powder and mix well. Add the ghee little by little and keep mixing it well. You could even add a pinch of red orange colour if required as i did.

When it starts leaving the sides of the vessel, transfer the contents to a greased bowl. Either you can serve it that way or else, spread them out on a greased plate and cut them into pieces.
