Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: 15 mins
Makes 4 servings
1/3 cup coarsely powdered almonds or pistachios
2 tbsp melon seeds
2 tbsp poppy seeds
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
1/2 cup sugar
oil to grease
1. In a heavy bottomed pan, add the sugar and melt it over gentle heat, stirring continuously till the sugar is light brown in colour (caramelised).
2. Remove from the fire, add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
3. Pour this mixture onto a greased marble or stone surface.
4. Using a large greased rolling pin, roll out the praline as thinly as you can.
5. While it is still warm, cut into triangles. Allow it to cool completely.
6. Store in an air-tight container.
Note: Remove the sugar from the flame just when it starts to caramelize because it continues to turn brown even after it is removed from heat.
