Water- 1\4 cup
silver wraps for decoration (optional)
1.Powder the cashew in the mixer to a fine powder.the cashew should not used directly from fridge,bring it to room temperature and powder it.
2.Boil sugar with water and keep stirring.The sugar consistency is very important for this sweet.it must be one string consistency.to check it keep water in a plate and add few drops of syrup in it,it forms thread and does not dissolve.
3.At this stage add the cashew powder and keep stirring in low flame for 2-3 mins.when it forms a dough mass switch off and transfer it to a greased plate for kneading.
