To Garnish
1.     Add a pinch of saffron to hot milk and set aside.
2.     Take a wide and a heavy bottomed pan. Heat on medium to low. Melt the butter. Do not let the butter boil.
3.     Now mix the milk powder slowly and nicely.
4.     To this add condensed milk. Combine well without any lumps.
5.     Add the soaked saffron milk and cardamom powder to the mixture and mix well.
6.     Keep mixing well. The mixture turns thick and starts leaving the edges, put off the heat. Transfer it to a different container. This is because the mixture may get heated more which inturn may not yield soft pedas.
7.     Handle the dough when you can withstand the heat of the dough. Start making the pedhas. Take a small amount and make a smooth ball. Press the middle of the ball with your finger and make a dent. Place chopped nuts on the dent.
8.     Else you can roll the dough a bit thicker and use a cookie cutter and make you kids favorite shape.
9.     Transfer the pedhas to an airtight container. For longer use say a week or so refrigerate the pedhas.
