( serves 4-6) (Milk fudge)
Prep time: 5 mins Cooking time: 30 mins Ingredients 2 litres full-fat milk 2g crushed alum (available in stores selling Indian ingredients) 50g sugar 2 tsp ghee (clarified butter), for greasing pistachio slivers, to garnish Method 1. Bring milk to a boil in a large heavy-bottomed pan. Lower heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until it thickens and begins to coat back of a spoon. 2. Add alum and stir continuously until milk becomes grainy and moisture evaporates. 3. Add sugar and continue to stir for about 10 minutes or until it becomes a solid mass. 4. Grease an aluminium tray with ghee and spoon mixture into tray. Level with a spatula. Garnish with pistachio slivers and leave at room temperature to set. (Do not refrigerate as that would dry it up.) 5. When completely set, cut into desired shape and serve.
