    1 teaspoon
  • Rose essence

Soak cashew nuts in five cups of water for an hour or two. Drain and grind them to a fine paste on a grinding stone, using as little water as possible.

Step 2

Mix together sugar and cashewnut paste. Cook in a deep pan on medium heat. When the mixture begins to thicken, reduce heat and keep stirring.

Step 3

When the mixture becomes thick and leaves the sides of the pan (it should take about eight minutes) sprinkle cornstarch. Stir well and remove from heat.

Step 4

Immediately mix in the rose essence and quickly turn onto a greased marble or wooden surface. Quickly roll thinly with a greased roller. Spread the silver sheet over and cut into diamond shaped katlis. Store in an airtight container when cold.
