  • Milk: 1 litre
  • Sugar: 1/2 cup
  • Sweetened condensed milk: 1 can
  • Green cardamoms: 4 crushed
  • Kesar (saffron): a few strands
  • Rice :4 tablespoon
  • Pistachios: 10-15


Soak the saffron in two tablespoons of lukewarm water.
Soak the pistachios in water for half and hour, peel and slice.
Grind the rice into a fine powder.


In a thick bottomed pan boil the milk with cardamoms till it reduces to half of its original volume. Combine the sweetened condensed milk, saffron and sugar and simmer for ten to twelve minutes. Now add the rice powder very slowly, one tablespoon at a time stirring vigorously to avoid lumps. Keep adding the rice till you reach the desired consistency. You want a thick consistency, even spreadable but not a paste. Immediate transfer to serving bowls and let cool. Garnish with pistachios and refrigerate for three to four hours before serving.
