METHOD:
Crush the cardamom and the nuts and keep them separately.  Scrape the Coconut and fry it lightly in an empty skillet for 5 minutes.  In another skillet melt the jaggery using 1 tablespoon water  and strain it removing dirt.  Now add the fried coconut to the melted jaggery over moderate flame stirring well. You can add the  ghee and the cardamom with the crushed nuts etc to the mixture. The mixture becomes sticky and thick in 10 minutes. When it starts leaving the side of the skillet, remove from flame and pour it in a greased
plate.  Use a spatula to flatten the mixture and allow it to cool for 5 minutes.  Then start cutting in to squares.
