Pedhe

This is a very simple recipe. It's one such sweet everybody likes. I make this whenever I want something sweet to eat.

Makes about 35 pedhas of medium size.
This is what I used:
1 tin sweetened Condensed milk
2 cups Carnation Milk Powder
8 tbsp unsalted Butter
1 tbsp Almonds, roasted.
1-2 strands Saffron
1 tsp Milk.

This is what I did:
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter for 1 minute. Add the milk powder and condensed milk. Mix everything together.
Dilute the saffron strands in the milk and mix it with the above mixture.
Microwave for 2 minutes. Take out & stir. Again microwave for 2 minutes. Take care it may overflow. Stir.
Roast the almonds in micro for 1 minutes so that they become crunchy & halve them.
Grease hands with butter or ghee and make pedhas while the mixture is still warm. Take care not to burn your hand. Stick the almond halve to decorate.
Pedhas are ready.
