For this recipe we need: 20 oz of milk 10 almonds, which I have already soaked and peeled. 10 pistachio nuts I have soaked and peeled. 1/4 teaspoon of cardamom powder Few strands of saffron. 2 tablespoons of sugar, adjust to your taste. About 1 teaspoon of sliced pistachios to garnish. I will grind the nuts. Almonds Pistachios And now I am going to add some milk and blend it again to smooth paste. Just couple of spoons of milk. It looks good. And blend it very fine. I will boil the milk on medium high and then add all the ingredients. First I am going to boil the milk on medium high. Do stir occasionally so milk doesn’t burn from the bottom. Milk has come to boil. So I will lower the heat to low medium. And add the nuts. Cardamom powder Sugar And saffron. Just before adding the saffron, crush them with your fingers. Mix it. Now let it simmer on low heat for 6-7 minutes. Milk has been boiling for about 5 minutes.
