Butter a tray or plate and set aside. Heat butter in a non stick pan on low flame until melt. Add milk and milk powder and mix thoroughly. Now mix in the powdered sugar and keep stirring continuously.

Cook till it becomes a lump in the middle and butter starts leaving the sides of the mixture. Transfer this mixture to the buttered tray or plate and flatten in with the back of a spoon. Allow it to cool and set. Now cut into desired shape and garnish with the soaked saffron and nuts of your choice. Serve at room temperature.
