2-3 tsp ghee
2 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cashewnuts
1/2 tsp cardamon powder

At the same time, grind the cashew nuts into coarse pieces. It would add to the taste of the sweet and make it crunchier.
Add milk, sugar, cardamon powder and grounded cashew nuts to the above coconut mixture and stir it continuously on the medium flame, till the mixture becomes little dry and begins to leave the sides of the pan. Ensure to stir the mixture constantly, so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
Now transfer the entire mixture onto a greased plate and spread it evenly. Keep it aside for a while, to let it cool. You may also choose to keep the plate in the refrigerator for a short while.
Once the spread cools down and gets a little hard, cut them into square or diamond shaped pieces.
