1. Boil milk in heavy bottom non-stick pot until reduced to 2.5 litres ( that's half quantity and milk color will slightly brown). Keep stirring so milk doesn't stick to pot.
2. Add citric acid mixed with water to milk, milk will start curdling to lumps and allow this to simmer until water reduces, keep stirring.
3. Add sugar, cardamom powder and ghee to milk curdles, stir well and simmer until semi dry.
Garnish with chopped nuts and serve.
