How to Make Sugar Coated Cashew Nuts

  • Heat an iron kadai and dry roast the cashew nuts on low heat for 10 minutes.
  • Stir it continuously for 10 minutes.
  • Transfer the dry roasted cashew nuts into a flat steel serving dish or non-stick pan.
  • For the sugar syrup:
  • In a wide bowl, boil sugar and water on medium heat until you achieve a one thread consistency. It may take 7 - 9 minutes to reach a thick honey-like one-thread consistency. Switch off the heat.
  • Pour thick sugar syrup over the dry roasted cashew nuts and stir it gently.
  • Mix it with a flat spatula or with a thick tbsp until the sugar syrup is well coated on the cashew nuts.
  • Cashew nuts may stick together so separate each cashew nut.
  • Now sprinkle rice flour over it and mix it well again.
  • Stir it well until all the ingredients are well combined.
  • Keep it aside for half-an-hour.
  • A shining sugar coating will appear later. Store it in an airtight container.
