  • 3-4 tbsp chopped nuts ( almonds, cashews and pistachio )
  • 1 small onion paste

Method :-

Heat ghee in a kadai and add onion paste. Saute for few minutes and add ginger - garlic paste.
Saute everything for 3-4 minues, add amchoor, cumin, red chilli and garam masala powder.
Now add sugar and add less than 1/4 cup water.
Cover the kadai with lid and let it cook the gravy till oil separates.
Now add nuts, dates and raisins, saute for few minutes and once again add little water.
