Parwal: 12 (Middle sized)
Khoya: 1 cup
Sugar : 1 1/2 cup
Milk Powder : 1/4 cup
Grated Almond : 1/4 cup
Pistachio : 1 tbsp
Cardamom powder : 1 tbsp
Saffron : 1/4 tbsp
Baking soda: 1/4 tbsp
1. Remove the hard peels of parwals and half cut them in the middle. Carefully, remove all the seeds using a butter knife. Sharpen knives may cut the other part of the parwal so it is safe to use a butter knive.
2. Take khoya in a pan and heat it, before it starts melting add 1/4 cup of sugar. You can increase or decrease the amount of sugar according to your taste.
3.Add almonds and pistachio once the khoya is completely melted. Keep stiring it.
4. Now add cardamom and milk powder.
5. Stuffing is ready, allow it to cool.
6. Take 2 cups of water and make it boil. Add baking soda into it. Baking soda gives a nice bright green color to the parwals without using artificial color. Now boil parwals for 3-4 minutes.
6. Now for making sugar syrup, in a pan take 1 cup of sugar and add 1/2 cup of water and boil it. Now add the boiled parwals into the sugar syrup. Cook it for next 2 min at a low flame. Turn off the stove and cover it for 10 min.
7. After 10 minutes, carefully remove parwalas from the syrup and cool it down.
8. Now, fill the khoya stuffing inside the parwal.
9. Garnish them with saffron and rest almonds. Now its ready to serve. We can store it in the refrigerator for a week
