A crunchy mithai with the rich taste and luscious mouth-feel of cashews, the Cashew Mithai Mixture is a treat that reminds many of their guileless childhood days!

The consistency of the sugar syrup is very important as that is what gives the mithai its irresistible crunch. Once you get this right, you can make many more mithais using soaked and peeled almonds, pistachios, roasted flours and seeds, or a combination of ingredients too.
