Grate khoya with a steel (not iron) grater. Add powdered sugar and mix well. Put mixture in a large heavy or nonstick pan. Heat the mixture initially on a high flame for few minutes and then simmer it until it is done.
Stir constantly. When mixture thick and gooey, add cardamom and mix well. Then remove it from the cooking range. Allow it to cool, gently churning the mixture occasionally.
Make oblong shaped pedas with palms or you can be innovative and use cookie moulds. Sprinkle pistachios and cardamom seeds on top and the pedas are ready to serve.
