yes, what you heard is exactly correct. This is not a spicy recipe as you think. It's a very delicious and yummy sweet. I have prepared this recipe with Green bell peppers. You can use other bell peppers also. Here is the recipe..
Green bell peppers : 6 medium size
Sugar : 1.5 cups
Milk : 1 or 2 cups
Ghee : 50 gmsCardamom : 2 pads
Wash the peppers and grate it. Squeeze the water from the grated capsicum / peppers and keep aside. Next.. Soak the grated peppers in the hot water for up to 5 minutes. Now wash it in separate water. Squeeze the water out and keep aside. Melt the ghee in a wide pan. Add and fry cashews to golden color first, and then add raisins to golden balloons. Take it out..In the same pan, add and roast the grated capsicum in it for 10 minutes. When color changes add a desired amount of milk. Boil the milk on low flame with constant stirring to avoid scorching and breaking of milk. When milk evaporates add sugar and cardamom powder. Stir properly.. Love that aroma of the cardamom... When a little water evaporates, add 1 table spoon of ghee. cook for sometime till the sugar dissolves completely. When little syrup remains in it remove it from the flame and spread in a greased dish. Decorate with cashews, raisins and chopped almonds..Now It's absolutely Yummy..
If mawa has to be added, add it after all the water of sugar evaporates. The mawa has to be roasted a little..
