Equipment

  • Microwave

Ingredients

  • 1 Can (397 gmCaramel condensed milk (one can even use simple condensed milk)
  • 400 gms Milk powder
  • 3 tablespoon of ghee/Clarified Butter
  • 100 grams desiccated coconut
  • 200 ml milk
  • 2-3 pinches of saffron
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom
  • 10-12 almonds flakes or sliced for garnish

Instructions

  • In a large microwave safe bowl add all the ingredients except almonds.
  • Mix everything with a spatula and cook in microwave on high power for 2 minutes.
  • Remove and stir.
  • Repeat the process in batches of 2 minutes and at the end of 8-9 minutes in batches of 1 minute.
  • Repeat until mixture resembles a semi stiff mass. It should take around 11-12 minutes depending on your microwave.
  • Let the mixture cool down for at least 1.5-2 hours.
  • Once cooled, shape it into desired shape.I simply made it in peda shape, and then formed an indentation on the top and decorated with almond flakes.
  • Store this in an airtight container in the fridge. When stored in the fridge they stay good for at least 2 weeks.

Notes

  • 1 Cup = 235 ml, 1 tablespoon = 15ml, 1 teaspoon = 5ml
  • When cooking in a microwave always use short burst of cooking. The food might get cooked fast and it might burn.
  • One can use 1 min of burst instead of 2 mins.
  • One can even use simple condensed milk instead of caramel condensed milk. The taste would change as it will not have the caramel flavour
