Method : Combine cashewnuts, coconut and sugar. Grind coarsely. Place a heavy-bottomed pan on fire. Add ground mixture, stir for about 6 to 8 minutes on medium, add khoya and stir on slow fire for few more minutes. Add ghee, gradually while stirring. Add cardamoms. Stir. When the mixture leaves the side of the pan and forms into a lump, remove on the greased tray and spread evenly. Sprinkle almonds on the top. Roll with rolling pin, very lightly.
