  • 3 cups full cream milk powder
  • 3/4 tin Nestle Cream 170g
  • 2 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp. grated ginger
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp. ground Elychee cardamom
  • Candy sprinkles optional


  • Mix the milk and cream...until it starts to develop a dry crumbly texture. (Note: It would take a bit of mixing to bring it to this stage). Then sift the mixture through a fine sieve or strainer.
  • Grease a baking dish and add some sprinkles.
  • Bring to a boil the water, sugar, ginger, and cardamom. (The sugar has to be reduced right before it spins a thread, which could be anywhere from 8 to 10 minutes).
  • Pour over the milk and mix quickly. Then place in the greased dish and press with your hands.
  • Add more sprinkles on the top. Cut into squares before it cools.
