Add milk in a slow trickle to khoya, stirring continuously and cook till milk is absorbed. Repeat the same process till all the milk is used. Take off the heat, add rose essence, cardamom powder and chopped pistachio. Mix well. Now take a little of the mixture and shape it into a round flat peda. Make same-sized pedas from the remaining mixture. Leave aside to cool thoroughly before offering.
