3 cups Milk Powder 1 cup Sugar 1 cup Pistachio powder (coarse) 2 Tablespoons Desi Ghee 1 1/2 cup water


In a non stick pan put ghee, 1 cup milk powder and 1 cup sugar. Add water and mix with a whisk to a smooth paste. Put this pan on medium-low heat and bring it to rolling boil, mixing all the time. Now take pan off the flame. Now add remaining 2 cups milk powder. Put the pan on flame again and keep mixing the paste till it thickens. Keep flame low. Now add pistachio powder (keep 1 tablespoon powder aside for garnish). Mix well. Take the pan off the flame when it becomes dough like. Let it cool completely. Knead it to smoothen.
