Pista Cashew Basket


Khawa (mava) 1 cup

Sugar powder 1/4 cup
Pistachio powder 1/4 cup

Cashew powder 1/4 cup
Cardamom powder 1/4 tsp
Green food colour 1/4 tsp

Saffron strands a few & Silver foil (varq) for garnishing


1. Take Khawa in a thick bottomed non stick pan and fry for 2 minutes. Then add sugar and fry both together on low flame till the ghee separates from the mixture (5-10 min). Keep the flame of gas slow or the basket will have a grainy texture.

2. Once the mixture starts leaving ghee from sides remove from gas and add the cardamom powder and mix. Make two portions of the mixture and add pistachio powder and green food colour to one part and cashew powder to another part. Leave it to cool.

3. Once completely cool make small baskets of the pistachio powder mixture as shown in the picture and fill it with the cashew powder mixture and with the crushed pistachios, saffron strands and silver foil. Serve
