As the grinding exceeds, the natural fat in the nuts start to release and it will change the texture of the sweet. The 2nd most important thing in this sweet is the sugar syrup consistency. You should add the cashew nuts powder when you get the one string consistency. After adding the cashew nuts powder, it will take only 3 minutes to complete the process. Do not do other things when preparing this sweet, focus entirely on the katlis and definitely you will get an amazing result.
