  • Dry roast rava in a kadai for 5 minutes and keep it aside
  • In the same kadai add 1 tablespoon of ghee and fry cashews.Take it out and keep it aside
  • Add little more ghee and fry rava in it just for 3 minutes (since it was previously dry roasted this timing is enough)

  • Take it in a mixer along with sugar and grind it to a fine powder 
  • Put it in a mixing bowl and the fried cashews.Roughly mix with your fingers
  • Pour the melted ghee and mix well with a spoon.The mixture will look crumbled but it doesn't matter
