  • 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

  • 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.
  • In a thick-bottom vessel, pour the paste and sugar and keep it on the stove.
  • Keep stirring constantly so that it does not stick to the vessel.
  • Once the sugar is dissolved, start adding ghee little by little. The cake will start thickening.
  • Add as much ghee as is needed. Once the cake leaves the bottom of the vessel, add the essence and stir once.
  • Pour it in a greased tray and let it cool for some time.
  • Then cut it into desired shapes.
  • Your pista cake is ready to eat.
