Indian milk sweet known as pedas made in the microwave.
1 can (13 or 14 oz) condensed milk
1 tbsp butter at room temperature
1/4 tsp saffron
1/4 tsp cardamom ground
2 tbsp coarsely ground nuts garnish
Using a fork beat the milk powder, ground cardamom and condensed milk until it is smooth. Add butter and mix well. Then add saffron, mix and microwave for 2 minutes.
The mixture will have a crumbled appearance and it should have a consistency where it can be rolled. If the mixture looks milky, microwave for another 30 seconds or 1 minute this depends on the microwave, do not overcook or the pedas will be hard.
Remove from heat stir the mixture and wait till the mixture cools because it will be very hot. Grease the hand and roll into shapes. Garnish with nuts and serve. Can also serve chilled.
