  • non-stick kadai/granite pan
  • Blender
  • baking tray to set the fudge


  • 200 gm thin sev prefer unsalted.
  • cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 1 ltr full fat milk reduced to 250 ml
  • 7-8 Saffron strands soaked in 1 tablespoon milk

Garnish: Sliced Almonds


    • Boil milk on low flame, add cardamom powder and saffron.
    • Allow it to reduce slowly on low flame, until ¼ of the original quantity.
    • Add sugar and stir until sugar dissolves,take it off from heat.
    • Blend the reduced milk with a blender to get smooth consistency (optional)
    • In a non stick pan, add the reduced milk mixture,allow it heat up a bit.
    • turn off the gas , add the 'sev' to the mix, mix very slowly.
    • After 5 minutes, once the 'sev' has absorbed the moisture,spread the mix in a tray lined with baking paper.
    • Garnish with almond, allow it to be set in the refrigerator.


    Note: Look for a plain thin 'sev' , not as thin as nylon 'sev' and that too unsalted.
    You can also use a salted 'sev'.
    Traditionally , this sweet is prepared with 'mava'.To make with mawa mix 150 gms of mava with ½ cup warm water. You can  also reduce the milk at home, just like we prepare rabri.
