Touch upon Sri Lankan Milk Toffee by Dhanish

This milk and toffee recipe is one of our oldest and most popular recipes – loved by everyone in our family. I love the milk and the crispy cashew taste in it. This is a common Sri Lankan sweet that is popular during the festive seasons such as Sinhala-Tamil New Year.
