Why I Love This Recipe

This is a delicious South Indian rock candy recipe that my mom used to make when we were kids.

Kalkandu (Rock Candy) - 1 1/2 cup
Ghee - 1 cup
Cashewnuts - little
Saffron Strands - a pinch
Raisins - little
Cardamom Powder - a pinch
Pachai Karpooram (Edible Camphor) - a small piece


Add milk to rice and pressure till done.

Remove and mash lightly.

Fry the cashewnuts and raisins in ghee. Keep aside.

Add enough water to kalkandu and bring to a boil till it reaches an one string consistency.
