Note: Remember don’t let the mixture cool down completely otherwise you won’t be able to cut proper squares.

  1. Heat a kadhai or deep non-stick pan then add til to it and roast them until bit golden-brown on low-medium flame, stirring continuosly (don’t roast til too much otherwise til will get burned and it won’t taste good).
  2. Remove them in a plate and when they come to room-temperature, grind til until it start releasing it’s own oil.
  3. Now add 2 1/2 tbsp ghee in same pan or kadhai and add jaggery to it.

  5. Now add 2 cups of roasted til (grinded), cashew nuts, almonds and cardamom powder to it and mix properly.
  6. Now remove the mixture on a ghee greased plate and spread it evenly and let it cool a bit.
  7. Then start cutting squares from the hot mixture(in plate itself).

Now let it rest for 9-10 minutes.

Serve.
