 Cooking Oil Spray

In a medium non-stick pan, over medium high heat, evenly spray cooking oil for 2 seconds. Add milk and bring to a rolling boil. Immediately reduce heat to low; add coconut, cardamom, nutmeg and mace.


Let milk mixture simmer for 1 hour. Continue to stir until mixture is reduced to half and turns to a light golden brown color. Add yellow food color and stir.


Grind edible gum in a coffee grinder until fine; add to milk mixture and continue to stir. At this point, milk will break up and water will be released. Spray cooking oil for 3 seconds in milk mixture and keep stirring for another 10 minutes until all water is dried up.


Coarse-grind almond and pistachio in a grinder and add to the milk mixture; add sugar and spray cooking oil for 2 seconds. Continue to stir until the color turns dark brown and mixture starts leaving the sides of the pan turning into a soft dough. Spray cooking oil for 1 second.


In a 5-inch square or a rectangle pan, evenly spray cooking oil for 1 second and pour the milk dough into the pan. Flatten the dough evenly with the back of a spoon.


Sprinkle poppy seeds and cut into four diagonal, square or round pieces.
