- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- chopped pistachios, cashews, almonds, rose petals and edible golden leaf (optional)
Roast gram flour and semolina with ghee on low flame in a heavy bottomed pan until it is aromatic and golden brown in colour (around 20-25 minutes). Keep aside.
Simple syrup - Combine water with sugar and boil for around 7-8 minutes until it has reached a sticky consistency.
Add sugar syrup, cardamom powder to roasted gram flour and semolina mixture and combine quickly. Pour this mixture immediately in a lined tin, garnish with chopped nuts and let it set for an hour at room temperature. Slice into pieces with a knife and enjoy!
