Mixed Nut Chikki
Mixed nuts chopped into small pieces-1 cup

Heat the ghee in a kadai,add the sugar.In a medium heat cook the sugar till it melts & starts to caramelize till light honey colour.
Immediately add the chopped nuts,mix it well & switch off the stove.Quickly pour it on a wooden board & spread it well with a rolling pin( You have to be quick here otherwise it will harden ).
