If required slowly add the balance milk.
Pour the mixture in prepared tin & decorate with blanched almonds on top.
Bake for 20 mins. Remove from pan & allow to cool completely.
To blanch almonds, place them in boiling water for about 1 min. Drain & immediately place them in ice-cold water to stop further cooking. Peel the almonds.
Pre-heat the oven to 180 C. Toast almonds for 8-10 mins or until golden brown & fragrant. Allow them to cool & slice coarsely. Set aside.
In absence of mawa - use 2 Tbsp heaped cashew powder + 2 Tbsp heaped milk powder in addition to the quantity suggested above of cashew & milk powder. Or you can use Mawa Burfi in place of mawa.
Baking time depends on quality of mawa & hence you should check after 20 mins for bigger pan size.
