- 1 kg roasted rice flour
- 750 g sugar (dark brown)
- 1½ cups water
- 1½ tsp ground cardamom
- 1 tsp ground fennel
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 100 g cashew nuts
- Put sugar into a saucepan and add the water. Bring it into boil. When the sugar syrup becomes a bit sticky, switch off the flame and add ground cardamom and fennel, then roasted rice flour little by little but constantly into the sugar mixture. Keep ½ cup of rice flour back.
- Before you start boiling sugar syrup, spread that spare rice flour on the tray where we are going to set our Aluwa.
- When you’ve added all rice flour and the mixture has become like a fudge, put it on the tray. Press it until flat.
- Then mark lines on it in a diamond shape or as you like. Separate the pieces before it gets hard.
