I got some red and yellowish pears from Lulu. They turned out pretty sweet and pretty hard as well. So I grated one, sprinkled chat masala and had it. Still I had 4-5 more and nobody was ready to have them. I tried a nutty cake which turned out yum and gooey.

1- Red and yellow pear washed n grated with skin
1/4 Cup unsalted butter

Now in the wet paste add all these things except white vinegar, chopped nuts and boiling water.
