Transfer this in a pan and cook the mixture till the mixture is really fragrant and forms a ball then transfer back in the plate. Let the mixture cool just a little so it’s easy to work with, at this point add powdered sugar little by little until you are satisfied with the taste, if you choose to add the saffron add it now or leave it plain.
