In a non-stick pan, heat ghee on medium heat.

Add milk powder and fry for 2-3 minutes till it turns light brown.

Lower the heat and add sweetened condensed milk. Mix well.

Add saffron threads and cardamom powder. Mix well and continue cooking on low heat.

Keep stirring continuously for 5-7 minutes till the mixture thickens and starts leaving the sides of the pan.

Divide the mixture into small portions and shape them into balls.

Garnish with chopped nuts.
