Note: In the given recipe, use of chillies is not specified. I just added it from my side. You can turn it spicy by adding cardamom, a small piece of cinnamon, a piece of star anise and 2 cloves while soaking cashews to make a paste. You can add almonds too. To give a final touch, add/decorate with a little fresh cream.
