  • Pistachio - 1/2 cup
  • Almonds - 1/2 cup
  • Sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Water - 1/4 cup
  • Dry Milk Powder - 2 tbsp
  • Green cardamom powder - 1 tsp
  • Ghee/clarified butter - 2 tsp


  1. Roast pistachios and almonds on low flame for 2 minutes. Let them cool down completely. Grease a square plate with 1 tsp ghee and keep it ready.
  2. Add all the nuts in your grinder and powder it in one go. If you take too much time to grind, it will start oozing oil and become sticky.
  3. Boil sugar and water in a pan and when it comes to one string consistency, lower the flame.To check one string consistency, take a drop of the the water and sugar mixture and try making a string between your index finger and thumb.
  4. Add powdered nuts, milk powder, cardamom powder and 1 tsp of ghee and keep stirring. In few minutes it will automatically turn into a dough.
  5. Remove from gas stove and pour the mixture into a greased plate and spreads evenly.
  6. When it cools down cut it into equal pieces and store it in a cool place. You can garnish with some chopped or powdered pistachios.

Recipe Notes

You can also use khoya in place of milk powder or avoid using it completely.

You can shape them in desired shapes using shape cutters.

Consume this sweet within few days.

If you're not able to cut into squares and its too soft, add it back in a pan. Cook for another 2 minutes, spread on a greased plate and then cut into shapes once it cools down.
