As cashews release oil while grinding, mix remaining almonds and grind to a fine powder. If you have a small dry grinder jar, then grind in batches. Take out in the same pot.
Similarly grind pistachios. Take out in the same pot.
Then take green cardamoms, sugar, fennel seeds (saunf) & saffron strands and grind to a fine powder. Take out in the same pot.
