• 1 cup California walnuts
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cardamom powder
  • 3 cups milk powder
  • Some pumpkin seeds
  • Some dried fruits (orange, kiwi and mango)


  1. Heat the pan, add some chopped California walnuts and dry roast them and then transfer in a bowl.
  2. Add 2 cups of water in the same pan to make syrup.
  3. Add 2 cups of sugar in it and add cardamom powder. Mix it well and cook for at least 15 minutes on medium flame.
  4. Take some syrup in between your fingers, if the sugar string between your finger and thumb doesn’t break after pulling apart, it’s ready.
  5. Then put the heat on a slow flame and add 3 cups of milk powder in it (add step by step and keep stirring vigorously to avoid getting lumps in it).
  6. Add roasted California walnuts and some pumpkin seeds in it (you can turn off the stove/put it on slow flame now)
  7. Add some dried fruits (orange, kiwi and mango to balance the sweetness of other ingredients) and mix it well.
  8. Further transfer the mixture in a tray (greased with oil and place a parchment paper on it).
  9. Add some California walnuts, pumpkin seeds and dried fruits on top.
  10. Rest it for a minimum 3 hours at room temperature to set.
  11. Cut it into pieces and serve.
