Pistachio brittle

Pistachio 3/4 cup chopped
Sugar 3/4 cup
Ghee or butter 2 tbsp

On a non-stick tray or aluminum foil, lay out the chopped pistachio.
In a thick bottomed pan, on low heat, heat the sugar and ghee/butter.
Stir the sugar to ensure it does not get burnt.
Once the sugar starts boiling, check on it every minute by dropping a tiny drop of the boiling sugar in water. If the drop hardens like a candy, take the pan out of the stove. This process will not take more than 5 minutes. Note that it is very easy to burn sugar so be very careful.

Pour this sugar melt on top of the pistachio in the tray (be careful, this is really hot!)
Let this cool down - it will harden like a candy.
Break into pieces and enjoy.
