  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 750 ml milk
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
  • A generous pinch of saffron
  • 1 tbsp rose water


  • Soak the almonds in hot water for around 30 minutes. Peel the skin off the almonds. Grind into a smooth paste by adding a couple of tablespoons of milk. Set aside.
  • Heat milk in a saucepan. Allow it to come to a rolling boil. Simmer on low flame stirring occasionally to avoid sticking to the bottom of the pan, till the mixture reduces to 3/4. Add in the almond paste, sugar, cardamom and saffron and continue to cook till the mixture looks thickened. Switch off and add the rose water.
  • Serve warm garnished with slivered almonds and saffron!
