  • 1 cup pista.
  • 2 cups sugar.
  • 1.25 to 1.5 cups ghee.
  • Milk just enough to grind the pista.
  • Pista essence - 2 to 3 drops.
  • How to Make Tasty Pista Cake:

    1. Soak pista for 4 hours in cold water. Peel the skin and grind pista into a paste, adding milk instead of water. The paste must be like tomato sauce.
    2. In a thick-bottom vessel, pour the paste and sugar and keep it on the stove.
    3. Keep stirring constantly so that it does not stick to the vessel.
    4. Once the sugar is dissolved, start adding ghee little by little. The cake will start thickening.
    5. Add as much ghee as is needed. Once the cake leaves the bottom of the vessel, add the essence and stir once.
    6. Pour it in a greased tray and let it cool for some time.
    7. Then cut it into desired shapes.
    8. Your pista cake is ready to eat.
