- ½ cup Orzo pasta
- ¼ cup Sugar
- ¼ cup Condensed milk
- ¾ cup Milk
- 3 cup Water
- Salt - a pinch
- 1 Cardamom
- 1 tsp Ghee
- 6 Cashews
Bring 3 cups of water to boiling in a vessel. Add orzo, salt to it and cook for 10 mins.
Simmer for 4 mins in low flame to make it more soft.
Add sugar, boil of 2 mins.
Add condensed milk and milk.
Boil furthermore in medium flame or low flame for 5 minutes.
Switch off the flame, add powdered cardamom and broken cashews fried in ghee until golden and crisp. Mix well.
- Use heavy bottomed pot and stir frequently after the pasta gets cooked as the starch could make it burn at the bottom of the vessel.
- Adding salt is optional, I always add a pinch to my sweets as only sugar is flat for me.
- You can reduce sugar and condensed milk to 3 tbsp instead of 1/4 cup if you are not fond of sweet.
