  • Grind Kaju (cashews) to a fine paste (powder). Do not add any water while grinding. Keep aside.

  • Take sugar in a pan and add water. Boil till a single thread syrup is formed, about 3-4 minutes after the syrup starts boiling.

  • Mix Kaju paste into the syrup, break balls (lump) with a spoon moving it in a circular motion, stir well. Switch off the burner and let it cool so that it becomes thicker.
