  • 1 cup milk powder
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp melted ghee
  • 1 tbsp chopped nuts
  • 4 strands saffron


  • Take ghee in a pan, add milk.
  • Now add milk powder , mix well so that there are no lumps formed.I used a whisk for even mixing.
  • Now add powdered sugar.
  • It forms a goey paste, cook in low flame and keep mixing with a laddle. It will get thick and start leaving the sides of the pan.
  • It will form a thick mass and will gather.It will easily leave the sides of the pan.
  • It will be a thick mass easily coming together like shown below.Grease your fingers, take a pinch(be careful it will be hot), roll and see on a plate if it easily forms a ball then switch off.This is the correct stage.
  • Immediately transfer to a greased pan and level the top with ghee greased spoon.Now sprinkle nuts and saffron on top and press it with a spoon.I laid a parchment paper inside the pan and greased it.You can directly pour into a greased pan too.
  • Let it set for atleast 15 mins in room temperature.Cut into small squares and enjoy! Store and serve.


  • Do not cook more, it will result in a hard burfi.
  • THe mixture will look goey but will become tight after cooling down so immediately transfer and set it.
  • Have updated the recipe after trying few times.
