How to Prepare

  • In a wide stainless pot add milk and cardamom, cook over medium heat while stirring then add sugar (as per preference), once it comes to a boil, add condensed milk.
  • Take 1 Tbsp ghee or butter in a pan and roast all crushed nuts (that were soaked in warm water and chopped) for 3-4 minutes on medium flame.

  • Add all the roasted nuts then fried vermicelli to the simmering milk pot and continue to cook.
