This traditional recipe has been tested and tried countless times in my kitchen and the results are completely worth it! Over all these years of experimenting, I have learned that patience is the key to this recipe. Do not rush, cook with ease and your will love the combinations of flavors.
- Toast all the nuts except raisins. Toasting releases their essential oils and they taste so much better.
- Cook the goond (edible gum crystals) on a low flame. Cook until the sputtering stops and they are all puffed up.
- Semolina is optional. Feel free to leave that out.
- Powdered sugar can be substituted for jaggery.
- 1-2 tablespoon of Kamarkas ( sage herb or flame of the forest) is added to this recipe. Since I was out of it, I have skipped that.
This winters do give this family recipe a try and I am sure you are going to love it.
