Step 3: In a skillet over medium heat, combine the kithul syrup, cardamom seeds, nutmeg, vanilla, and 14 tsp of fine sea salt. Simmer for 2 minutes. Stir well after adding the coconut milk. Turn off the heat after heating to just below the boiling point.

Fill each ramekin to the very top and place the tray in the oven. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the custards are set all around but have a slight wobble in the middle. Remove them with care, then give them 15 minutes to rest. Add the cashews and coconut as garnish. You can eat them either hot or cold.
