    My class is studying about India and I would like to treat them to a dessert from there, but I don’t know of any store around here that might sell ingredients that may customarily be used in India.

    I picked up a dessert one time from a little Indian shop….I think it was made with pistachios and was cold and resembled green fudge. It also had flecks of silver paper stuff on the top, which the clerk said was “flavor”. I would love to know what it’s called and find a recipe for this.

    When i was little my grandad used to make this dish which he called indian sweet. He made it with
    Baby milk powder
    You would get a pan of water and add 500grams of sugar and leave it boil until the water went sticky. Then you would add 250grams of butter and let that melt. Finally you mix in the baby milk powder and let that set.
    He isn’t around anymore for me to ask but what is the proper name for it, i was trying to look it up on the internet and cannot find anything about it. Also i presume there are other methods to making it can someone give the recipe please.
