How to Make Chilled Milk Dessert

  • Soak the saffron in 2 tsp of hot milk and keep aside.
  • Chop the almonds and pistachios finely or crush coarsely.
  • Peel and powder the cardamom seeds with a mallet.
  • Add to the chopped dry fruits.
  • Run the saffron with the base of a mallet in cup until it dissolves in the milk.
  • Boil the milk in a large deep pan, stirring occasionally.
  • Reduce the heat and continue to boil, stirring frequently until the milk reduces to two-third the volume.
  • Add the other ingredients to the milk.
  • Boil further for 3-4 minutes. Take off the flame and cool the milk a little.
  • Pour into a large decorative serving bowl.
  • Allow the milk to cool completely, then chill in a refrigerator for 4-5 hours (to avoid formation of layers on the surface, stir frequently while cooling).
  • Decorate with rose petals and serve.
