  • 1 cup - whole Cashew nuts
  • 1 cup - Sugar (or it can be the same volume as the nuts)
  • 2 tbsps - Ghee or oil to roast the nuts
  • How to Make Mundiri Paruppu Nokkal:

    1. Heat ghee/oil in a pan and roast the cashew nuts to an even golden colour and drain.
    2. Dissolve sugar in one cup of water and boil.
    3. Add a tsp of milk. This will separate any scum or impurities along the sides of the pan. This should be scooped up with a spoon and discarded.
    4. Let the sugar syrup reach one thread consistency.
    5. Lower the heat and add the roasted cashew nuts to the syrup.
    6. Coat the nuts well with the syrup and spread them on a plate to cool.
    7. The candied nuts can be stored in air tight containers when cooled.
