  2. Add powdered sugar and cardamom powder and mix all together properly.

    Add sooji/rawa, ghee and milk and mix it properly till everything incorporates well.

    In a separate pan fry the broken pieces of cashews and few raisins and add it to the chenna mix as well.

    In a baking pan or a tin, add 1 tablespoon of ghee and spread all over the base.

    Add sugar and hold the pan or baking tray firmly on the gas top and heat the pan base till the sugar starts to caramelize.

    Turn off the gas and transfer the chenna mix over the caramelized sugar evenly.

    Tap the pan to settle the mix well and bake the chenna in a pre-heated oven at 180 degree C for 40-45 mins or till the toothpick inserted comes out clean.

    Take out the baked chenna poda and cool it on a wire wrack for 2 hours approximately.

    Hold the pan upside down on a serving tray and remove the chenna poda carefully.

    Cut into slices and serve!
