Cashew nuts - whole 1 1/2 cups or about 250 gms.
Ghee - 1/4 cup
Sugar - 1 cup

Take a flat surface - chappati stone or any marble surface and coat it with ghee. Coat the roller pin also with ghee.

Put the cashew nuts in a plastic bag and crush it slowly either with the help of a chappati roller or with any small flat stone. This will help the cashewnuts to break evenly. Heat a flat bottom pan and add 2 tbsp of ghee to it. Add the sugar when the ghee melts. Let the sugar melt and turn to a honey color (caramelize sugar). Put off the flame and add the broken cashew nut pieces and mix well with a spoon. (mixing should be done as fast as possible). Transfer it immediatly to the ghee coated surfaceand roll it with chappati roller pin. Cut it into square cubes.

Store it in an air tight container.
