    2. It should be a smooth paste. Keep aside.
    3. In a non-stick pan, make sugar of one string consistency.
    4. Then immediately add the cardamom powder and ground coconut-rice paste and keep stirring until it becomes thick and leaves the sides of the pan.
    5. Just before turning off the flame, add ghee and mix well.
    6. Garnish it with fried cashew and raisins.
