PISTACHIO FUDGE / PISTA BURFI

INGREDIENTS:

Pista(unsalted) - 1 cup
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Ghee - 3 tsp.

METHOD:

Blanch pista and peel the skin. Peeling the skin in a boredom job though.

Spread on a clean cloth and pat it completely dry. Heat a pan and warm the pistas(DO NOT DRY ROAST).

Grate & reserve a few pistas for topping. Grease a plate with ghee and keep aside.

Grind the pistas to a coarse paste. DO NOT ADD WATER.

Heat a heavy-bottomed pan, add sugar alongwith 1/2 a cup of water and bring it to one-string consistency.

Simmer the stove and add the pista paste. Mix well. Stir continuously till thick. Add ghee in between and stir till the mixture becomes like a dough and leaves the sides of the pan.

Switch off the stove and transfer the mixture to the greased plate. Top with grated pistas and flatten with a spatula to desired thickness. Cut into desired shapes while hot. When cool take out the pieces. Store in an airtight-container.
