Method :

  1.  Mix the egg and the milk powder together to form a thick, sticky dough-like mass. Divide into lemon sized balls and flatten gently on palms. If too sticky, dampen palms. Lay these flattened pieces without overlapping, on a tray.
  2. Heat a wide bottomed pan and bring the milk to boil and add sugar too. Once it starts boiling, bring the heat to sim and gently, very gently, add the milk powder-egg discs to this.
  3. You don’t need to mix or stir much, but be careful to give the discs enough space from each other in the liquid. They will expand a bit when they start cooking.
  4. After about 10 mins, add the crushed cardamom & pistachios  and. Let it cook for another 10 mins.
  5. When the pieces have expanded considerably and seem soft and cooked through (take out once piece, break and check inside if the dough is still sticky), remove from fire.
  6. Chill before serving.
