Unlike most sheeras in which nuts feature as a garnish, here two popular nuts – cashew and walnut – come to the centre stage as the main bulk of the sheera. While the walnuts are coarsely powdered, the cashews are broken, so that there is a good balance of textures, combining a rich graininess and an exciting crunch as well. The nuts are sautéed well to enhance the flavour and aroma, before cooking them in sugar, to get a really luscious Akhrot Kaju Sheera that is rich enough to become the talk of the day!
