Course: Sweets
Cuisine: Indian
Servings: 20 pieces


  • ½ cup Corn flour white starch
  • 1 & ½ cup Sugar
  • 2 cup Water
  • 1 pinch Cardamom powder
  • 5 Cashews
  • 2 tsp Ghee
  • ½ pinch Food colour


  • Mix corn flour,sugar,water and food colour in a large microwavable bowl, without any lumps.
  • Microwave in high for 6 minutes. After 4 minutes in between, mix once. Again microwave for 6 minutes, stirring in between after every 2 minutes of interval.
  • Fry cashews in ghee till golden brown (You can do this too in microwave by placing 1 tbsp ghee and broken cashew together in a microwave safe glass bowl for 1 minute, stirring every 20 seconds) and mix well along with cardamom powder. Grease a plate with ghee and pour in the plate and let it cool down for ½ hour or so. Cut into pieces and enjoy!


  • Stirring in between as mentioned is very important to ensure even cooking.
  • Do not reduce the sugar amount,as it will change the glossy look too and end up in porridge ;)
  • The whole process is made in microwave high power.
  • According to oven the cooking time varies plus or minus 2-3 minutes.
  • Consume within one or two days. Refrigeration changes the texture so it is not recommended.
  • There is a easy way to remember the recipe. 1 part corn flour,3 parts sugar,4 parts water. i.e; which ever cup u use, use the same cup and follow the ratio. Simple.
  • Use natural food colours.
