    3. As the mixture starts leaving the sides of the pan, add few strands of saffron and powdered cardamom.
    4. Keep a well greased plate and a greased rolling pin ready.
    5. When the mixture does not stick to the pan any more, pour it onto the plate and while hot, roll over it lightly to bring it into shape.
