100 grams almonds soaked, skinned and diced
100 grams pistachios soaked, skinned and diced
10 grams cardamoms shelled and powdered
50 grams raisins washed and dried

  1. Pre-warm a deep non-stick pan over medium heat. When warm, add the grated coconut, sugar if (using unsweetened coconut), diced nuts, raisins and cardamom powder. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Keep stirring often until the mixture is golden brown then remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
