Ingredients
  

  • 2 Cup White Sugar
  • 2 Number Green Cardamom Choti Elaichi - Optional
  • 2 Cup Water

Instructions
 

Grind Cardamom Preparation Time: 2 minutes

  • Using Cardamom is optional. We recommend using it.
    Peel the Cardamom to bring out the seeds. Crush or grind using a grinder seeds to make a powder. We used the rolling pin Belan to do it. Its fast and easier than grinding small quantity.
    If you have the ready-made Cardamom powder, you can skip this step.
    Peel and grind grind cardamom seeds into powder

Boiling Sugar Cook Time: 30 minutes

  • Take a pan big enough to hold the water and sugar together. Switch on the stove on high flame. Add Water and Sugar. Mix well and bring it to a boil.
    Dissolve sugar with water
  • Once it starts boiling, add cardamom powder.
    Add Cardamom
  • Now we need to cook it on low flame until it becomes a 1 string Sugar syrup.
  • After 20 minutes of cooking on low flame, our 1 string Sugar syrup should be ready.

Check Chashni Consistency Thickness

  • Take 2 drops of syrup between your index finger and thumb.
    Measure chashni with finger tips
  • Open the index finger and thumb opposite to each other and you will see a string of syrup coming up. The string’s thickness will define its 1 or 2 string consistency.
  • If the string is too light, it won’t make any string at all.If it is showing up 1 string, then it is called 1 string consistent Sugar syrup.
  • If it shows up 2 strings, then it would be called as 2 string consistent Sugar syrup.
  • You will be able to see the string within your fingers.
  • If you want 2 string Sugar syrup than cook it for another 5 minutes. Than check again with the same method.
  • Sugar Syrup is ready. You can use it in any recipe of your choice.

Notes

  1. Chashni can be preserved in refrigerator for 10-12 days.
  2. You can re-heat it before using as an ingredient in any other recipe. Using a stove and heating for 3 minutes on high flame before using is the best method.If you are in hurry or do not have stove, use Microwave.
