  1. It is not clear, if u r using crystal sugar or boora (cane sugar) and please confirm that cardamoms (as in image, or is it all pistachio) are green and not big-black ones.

  2. Just tried this recipe-…came out just like Eid ki seviyaan I had at a friend’s house once- absolutely delicious and so easy!!! Can’t thank you enough for such amazing recipes, Manjula Ji!
