Almond cottage cheese sweets


4 tbsp cottage cheese store bought
2 tbsp milk powder
2 tbsp ground almonds
2 1/2 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp saffron
1 tbsp warm milk
1 tbsp pistachios ground to garnish
1/2 tbsp butter for the dish optional

Mix cottage cheese, milk powder, almonds, sugar, saffron with milk. In medium high heat cook till the mixture comes off the sides of the pan. Keep stirring constantly about 15 minutes so it doesn't get burned, can take intervals stirring but keep watching. When the mixture is in the consistency of a smooth dough turn it onto a buttered dish and let it become warm enough to touch.
Make small bit sized balls then lightly flatten and make a small dent in the middle, garnish with pistachios. Eat when it is cool.

I soaked about 4 to 5 pistachios in hot water dried and ground coarsely. These pedas or barfis are sweet with a tangy taste, stays well in the fridge in an air tight container. This goes to celebrate sweets peda and sugar high friday bite size dessert.
