Instructions
  1. To make pedas:-
  2. Mix the milk powder, condensed milk and ghee in a large microwave safe bowl.
  3. :- There shouldn’t be any lumps.
  4. Microwave on high for 1 minute.
  5. Add saffron, nutmeg powder and cardamom powder and give a mix.
  6. Microwave on high for 1 more minute. Take it out and stir again. Again microwave for 1 minute. Remove from the oven and mix again.
  7. :- The mixture would thicken. If not, microwave on high for 30 seconds. Mine was ready by this time.
  8. Allow it to cool down a bit.
  9. Apply ghee on your palms and start shaping the pedas.
  10. :- I used a mould to shape the pedas.
  11. Apply ghee on the mould.
  12. Place a pinch of crushed almonds and pistachios in the centre of the mould and fill it with the peda mixture. Invert and place it on a wide plate.
  13. To make payasam:-
  14. Mix milk, milk powder and condensed milk in a bowl without any lumps.
  15. Transfer it to a saucepan and let it boil. Keep stirring at regular intervals. Otherwise it would stick to the bottom of the pan.
  16. When it reduces to ¾th, add in the cooked sago and roasted almond powder and mix well.
  17. When it becomes thick but still in pouring consistency, turn off the heat.
  18. Allow it to cool.
  19. Final Step:-
  20. Transfer the pedas to a serving bowl.
  21. Pour the payasam/kheer mixture over it.
  22. Garnish with pistachio powder and saffron.
