Notes

Don't grind cashews too much as it will release oil.

You can sieve and grind cashews again to make it fine.

If the mixture is too dry, you can add few drops of milk to make the dough smooth.

If the mixture is sticky you can cook for some more time.

You can add some flavorings like cardamom powder or rose essence if you wish.

Ghee is optional but it makes your dough smooth and soft.

I find it easy to roll using parchment paper as it won't stick much. Grease your hands with ghee.
