    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric


    • 1 1/2 cups coarsely crushed almonds
    • 2 teaspoons crushed cardamom
    • 6 edible silver foil, garnish (Varak) (optional)


    1. 1
      Cook the Ricotta cheese and butter on low to medium heat.
    2. 2
      (Sometimes the Ricotta splatters; keep it half covered at low to medium heat, stirring often to avoid burning.) After about ½ hour, stir in the sugar and dry milk.
    3. 3
      Cook, while stirring, until the Ricotta is of dry consistency, like paste that can be easily spread (10 to 15 minutes).
    4. 4
      Mix in the almonds and crushed cardamom.
    5. 5
      Spread in a non-stick 12x18" cookie sheet, about 1/3 inches thick.
    6. 6
      Pat gently with wax paper or spatula to make it even.
    7. 7
      Cover with the varak sheets for decorative look.
    8. 8
      Cut into squares or diamond shape when cool.
    9. 9
      Store in the refrigerator.
    10. 10
      Variation: Cook the Ricotta in the microwave oven, starting with 5 minutes at high.
    11. 11
      You can also cook it in the conventional oven.
    12. 12
      May add about ½ cup cocoa powder along with sugar to give chocolate taste and look.
    13. 13
      Or add about 1 cup slightly roasted and ground sesame seeds, along with other nuts, towards the end of cooking.

      I have made this exact same recipe years ago. I got the recipe from my son's sitter who was from East India. It was the most delicious sweet confection I ever had! Thanks for posting this as I forgot how to make it. I actually at the time (before internet came around) made them a little differently (accidently) by cooking it a bit longer than I should've which carmelized it more but still tasted great. I'll have to experiement and try to make it again and post it that way as well :-)
