    Hi Krishnaamma,

    In the Recipe 'Cashew burfi', you have not mentioned about when to add sugar, must have skipped off your mind.

    Read your Sugar Syrup post too. I was not knowing the proportion of water and sugar. I will definitely try at least one recipe and let you know and that recipe will be my first fight with a SWEET DISH........... Again praying for myself........

    Cashew and Pistachios Laddu


    Ingredients:

    1 Cup cashewnuts

    1/4 cup pistachios

    1 1/2 cup Milk

    Sugar (Take 1 1/2 measures of sugar for each measure of the paste)

    Ghee- 2-3 tablespoons

    Method:

    Soak the cashew and Pista nuts in milk for about 2-3 hours.

    Grind this in a mixer and make a fine paste.

    For each measure of this paste , take one and half measures of sugar in a thick bottomed vessel.

    Add a little water and bring it to a boil.

    Keep stirring occasionally till it forms a thick syrup of 'one string' consistency

    Now add the cashew-pista to the sugar syrup and keep stirring it on medium flame till the entire mixture starts

    getting together as a mass. Add ghee in it.

    See that when you scoop it out, it should easily leave the sides of the vessel.

    Take it off the flame and spread it out on a greased (with ghee) plate.

    After it cools down, roll it out into small laddoos.

    And your cashew pista laddoos are ready to eat.

    Boondi Laddu

    Ingredients

    1 cup Besan

    1 tsp Rice Flour or a pinch of baking soda( cooking soda )

    Salt 1 pinch

    2 tab sp crushed Cashews

    1 tab sp Raisins

    10 -15 Cloves

    Orange colour

    4 tbsp Ghee.

    1/2 sp cardamom powder

    Oil/ghee for frying

    For making Sugar Syrup

    Sugar - 1 3/4 cup

    Water - 3/4 cup

    Method

    Mix besan, rice flour, pinch of orange colour and salt with water.

    (the consistency should be like dosa mix so that it should be easy to make boondi)

    Heat oil in a frying pan. In the mean time in a pan heat 3/4 cup of water.

    Bring it to boil. Then add sugar. Put it in medium heat to make the sugar syrup.

    (Care should be taken that the sugar syrup is not over done. Using a spoon take few

    drops of sugar syrup, when you pour it from the spoon the last drop of the syrup

    should form a thin continuous line. If it doesn't keep it for boiling for another 2 minutes.)

    Heat oil in a pan. Take 'Boondi laddle' and hold the handle on your left hand

    and take a spoon full of dough on your right hand.

    Hold it on the hot oil, now pour the dough on the 'boondi laddle' and rub it

    very fast through the holes with the bottom of the spoon. The disc must be held close to the pan.

    The batter must fed quickly into the oil. Cook 'boondi' till they become fine gold colour.

    Remove and put them in a big vessel and then add the sugar syrup, raisins,

    fried cashews , cloves and powdered elaichi.

    Mix well . Make it into a ball.

    Your Boondi laddu is ready to taste.:wink:
