Week end we received a call from one of our friends that they are visiting us for tea and snack. They were at a distance of 30 minutes drive and I wanted to make a quick sweet and snack. This is the sweet that came to my mind that was taught to be by my mom. Served it with Paneer TikkaCooking time is hardly 15 to 20 mins. 
Wheat flour - 1 cups
Sugar - 2 cups
Ghee - 1 1/2 cups
Cashew Nuts - 10 to 12 nos
Cardamom - 6 to 8 nos
Water - 2 cups

Fry Wheat flour in 1/4 cup of ghee. When fried nicely add a little more ghee and make it paste. In the mean time heat 2 cups of water, bring it to boil. In a hard bottom pan add the fried wheat and water and make it a fine paste. Add the sugar to it and bring it to boil. Add cardamom powder to it and mix well. Keep stirring and keep adding the remaining ghee. Add the fried cashew nuts to it. When it turns glassy remove from fire and spread on a ghee greased plate.
