    Instructions are a bit unclear.
    -What do you set the heat on when you put ingredients in pan and then for duration of mixing time (low, med, high?)
    -When do you add the cardamom powder? No mention of it in instructions
    -when it says to mix 15-30 mins, how do you know when it’s done and to stop or keep mixing and cooking? Are steps 5 and 6 flipped maybe?
    Thanks in advance, I hope to make this!

  2. Also it says soak the almonds however only cashews are in the ingredients. I’m assuming this is a typo
