  • Sliced almonds for garnishing

Preparation

Bring the milk to boil in a heavy bottomed pan. Add the lemon juice ,stir gently and allow the milk to curdle. 

Hang up the curdled milk in a clean muslin cloth,pour cold water on the curdled milk to get the rid of lemon's taste and allow the whey to drain off for about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile , Mix the sugar ,water and cardamom powder  in a large pan.
