Ingredients

2 ½ cup cashews

2 cups sugar

1 pint whipping cream

2 tea spoons ghee or butter

¾ tea spoon cardamom powder

1/2 tea spoon saffron strands

Method

Coarsely grind cashews. Consistency should be that of sooji. Keep aside. Mix cream, sugar. Cook until 1 thread consistency. This will take about 10 minutes. Add cashew powder. On medium low heat, cook the mixture until it all comes together and doesn’t stick to the pan. This will take about 25 minutes. Add ghee, cardamom powder, and saffron. Stir for 2 more minutes. Pour onto a greased plate,, level with a spoon and cut after about 8 minutes.

Makes approx. 25 large pieces.

Note: For Almond Burfee, follow the same recipe as above but soak almonds in water and remove skin before grinding.
