If you have mawa milk powder in hand you can make this in less than 15 minutes.This delicious milk candy/fudge is a yummy treat for any festival or holiday season. If you do not have mawa milk powder you can substitute it with full fat milk powder. Try this, you will surely love it.

Mawa powder- 250 grams
(or full fat milk powder)
Milk- 1 cup
Sugar- 1 cup
Cardamom- 3-4
Ghee- 3 tbs
Sliced almond or pistachios-  to garnish



Make a fine powder of sugar and cardamom and set aside.
In a heavy bottom melt butter and add milk and mawa powder/milk powder. Mix well till it well combines and there is no lumps. Keep stirring in low flame for two to three minutes.
Into this add powdered sugar and cardamon and mix. The mixture will start to loosen a bit, but it will soon thicken and come together.
Continue to stir till it leaves the edges of the pan and can be shaped into a ball.
Transfer the mixture into a greased tray and spread evenly. Sprinkle chopped nuts and press down with the back of a spoon.Let it cool down completely and then refrigerate for 4-5 five hours so that it becomes firm and you can cut into desired shapes.
