    Alternatively take roasted nuts or make them at home in the oven or microwave.
    To do this in a conventional oven, spread the nuts in a shallow tray and drizzle warm ghee over it.
    Now bake for 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees F, till they become crunchy and brownish in color.
    Gently pound half of the nuts and mix these with sugar, coconut and cardamom powder.
    Mix rest of the nuts (not pounded portion) with this mixture and toss thoroughly.
    And yess, we are ready !!!!!
