  • 1 cup Sathumaavu Mix
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 4 tbsp ghee / clarified butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3-4 tbsp sliced almonds and pistachios


  • Heat a heavy-bottomed saucepan or wok. Add the wheat flour , Sathumaavu mix and give it a stir.
  • Add 4 tbsp ghee to the flour mix. Fry the flours on a low flame for 5-7 minutes or until we get a good aroma.
  • Meanwhile, put sugar and water in another sauce pan and put it on a medium heat. Cook the sugar syrup until it reduces to 2 string consistency.
  • Grease a baking tray or line it with parchment paper. Add the sugar syrup to the roasted flour mixture and stir quickly, so that the mixture is even and without any lumps. Turn off the flame.
  • Pour the fudge mixture into the tray. Grease the bottom of a small bowl and use it to spread and flatten out the fudge mix. Garnish with sliced Almonds and Pistachios. The fudge begins to set immediately, so quickly cut it into desired shapes.
