Serves: 4-6
  • 1 litre milk
  • ½ can condensed milk
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • A fat pinch saffron
  • ½ tsp cardamom powder
  • 1 cup milk powder
  • 1 tbsp all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • Crushed pistachios for garnish
  1. Bring the milk to heat. Add the condensed milk, sugar, saffron and cardamom and allow the mixture to cook for around 10 minutes till slightly thickened.
  2. For the dumplings, in a bowl, mix the milk powder, flour and baking powder well.
  3. Whisk the egg slightly and add into the dry ingredients.
  4. Using your fingers, slowly bring the mixture together to make a dough. Do not knead, just bring it together to a ball. (refer notes)
  5. Make 12 to 15 small flat pattie shapes. Make sure they are small and flat, since if it is bigger and thicker, it will take time to cook.
  6. Add into the boiling milk and cook for around 8-10 minutes, flipping slowly halfway through.
  7. Switch off and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
  8. Serve warm or cold, sprinkled with a generous serving of crushed pistachios.
If you feel your dough is not coming together after adding the egg, add milk by a tablespoon till it forms a ball.
Do not knead, otherwise the balls will become hard upon cooking.
