SERVINGS: 12 people


  • 50 gm Almonds

  • 50 gm Cashew

  • 50 gm Pistachio

  • 1 tbs Poppy Seeds

  • 2-3 tbs Cucumber Seeds

  2. Allow them to cool down.

  3. In a mixer jar, take all ingredients along with cooled down nuts and pulse until it is finely powdered.

  4. Do not over grind as the nuts will become oily. Only pulse the mixer 10-15 times.

  5. Transfer to a plate and when it is completely cool, transfer to an airtight jar and refrigerate.

While grinding the powder, you need to be very cautious. You just need to pulse the mixer. Don’t grind the nuts because it would emit oil and your powder might become a paste. So ten to fifteen pulses are enough to powder the given quantity.
