How to Make Instant Kaju Peda

  • Soak saffron in 1 tsp of hot milk.
  • Powder the cashew nuts ( may use splits or broken nuts to reduce the cost) and mix with milk powder, icing sugar and cardamom powder.
  • Crush the soaked saffron and add to the above mixture.
  • Add milk little by little to form a firm paste, the consistency of poori dough.
  • (Avoid adding excess milk which will make the paste sticky.
  • If at all the mistake happens, add some milk powder and icing sugar to rectify.)
  • Take small lumps of the paste and shape into pedas.
  • Garnish with thinly sliced pistachio.
  • May be stored in refrigerator up to three days.
