Heat the ghee in a kadai. Once the ghee is hot enough, simmer the flame and roast raisins.Remove raisins from the hot ghee and keep it aside. Now roast  rava over low flame till you get a nice aroma of roasted rava. Add sugar to it, mix well. Now add desiccated coconut, cardamom powder, raisins, coarsely ground cashewnut mixture and saffron. Mix well in a low flame. Once done, add 1/2 a tin of condensed milk to the mixture, mix well and turn off the flame. Transfer the contents into a large mixing bowl.
