In a pan take about ½ cup of water and add 1 cup of sugar into it, stir them properly so that sugar dissolves in water. Add cashew powder and stir this mixture continuously to prevent formation of lumps. Mix it until it consistency becomes dense.
Add 2 tablespoons of ghee & cook it on medium flame until it consistency becomes thick.
Now turn off the flame and mix the paste thoroughly for a while.
Grease a plate with ghee & transfer the cashew paste onto the plate and stir the paste continuously in the plate so that it cools down quickly.
