Soft unsweetened khoya-1.10 lb or 500gms (store-bought)
Powdered Sugar- 0.44 lb or 200gms
cardamom – 1tsp
saffron -12 to 15 strands
milk – 1 tbsp
Heat 1 tbsp of milk in a microwave safe bowl for 15 seconds and add the saffron strands and keep aside.
Crumble the khoya and mix it with powdered sugar in a nonstick pan on medium heat.
Keep stirring until it forms a thick mass (approx 7-8 minutes) Add cardamom powder.
Then add the milk along with the strands and mix well. Turn off the heat. Any of these two methods could be followed :
1:If cutting them into squares or diamond shape-Grease a heatproof plate with 1/4 tsp ghee or clarified butter, spread the mixture and cut them into desired shapes when warm.
2: If making them into round shape-Let the mixture cool for few minutes. Make them into small 1-2 inch rounds with your hands (by pinching 1-2 inch mixture from the lump and gently rolling them in between your palms), when they are still warm.
Garnish with few pistachios and saffron strands and serve.
