1 Can Condensed Milk (Not the "Light" version) 350 g Sugar 1 tsp Vanilla Essence 50 ml water 2 Cardamoms 50 g Cashew
Roast Cashew until golden brown in a pan (you can use the Microwave, medium power for 45 seconds, leave 30 seconds and put it for further 45 seconds) Once the Cashew has cooled down, crush into pieces and set aside. Finely grind Cardamom seeds and set aside. Apply a thin layer of butter to a flat dish (Pyrex preferred). On a fairly deep non-stick pan dissolve sugar with water (add more water if required). Slowly heat the pan and add condensed milk and stir continuously for about 15 minutes Add 1 tsp of Vanilla and Cardamom stir well. When the mixture starts to crystallize (mixture should be in a nice golden color) add chopped cashew and mix well. Pour the mixture into the dish and flatten with a spatula or a spoon. Leave it for some time and cut into squares or diamonds with a sharp knife (wipe the knife with a cloth damped with cold water each time to help cutting easy) Can make about 50 pieces of average size. Feel the roasted cashew flavor with every bite !
