Soak the Cashew nuts in the Milk for an hour and then grind them in a mixer to prepare a paste.
In a Kadai slightly roast the Dried Whole Milk on a slow flame and then add the grounded Cashew Nut paste and grounded Sugar Powder. Mix it well and fry it till it become a thick mixture. Remove from the flame and keep it aside for cooling.
After the mixture cools down add the Cardamom Powder, mix it well and prepare small balls from the mixture and then given them a Modak Shape with your hands, you can also use a Modak Mould for this purpose.
