Ingredients :

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 1/2 cups milk

1 X 410 g canned sweetened condensed milk

125 g ghee

1 cup cooked mashed potato

1 cup cashew nuts, chopped finely

Use a large heavy saucepan to mix in the sugar, milk, condensed milk and ghee. Cook over medium heat. Stir constantly until mixture reaches 116oC (240oF) on a candy thermometer. Remove saucepan from the heat, add the smoothly mashed potato and beat with a beater until all the lumps are smoothen out. Return to heat and cook to 116oC (240oF) once again. Remove from heat and stir in the nuts, rose water and cardamom and mix well. Pour mixture into a buttered shallow dish. Press lightly with a buttered spoon to flatten the surface. Allow to cool and set. Cut into square shapes before serving.
