This a great recipe. I wish I could eat more of it.
1 litre milk (3-4 cups)
1/4 cup rice, washed and soaked for 30 minutes or 3/4 - 1 cup cooked
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. cardamom powder
10 strands saffron, crushed, soaked in 1 tsp. warm milk
10 unsalted pistachios
Crush almonds, pistachios coarsely, keep aside.
Boil rice in plenty of water till half done.
Drain, spread on a plate, to cool grains.
Heat milk, bring to a boil.
Add rice, stirring continuously, till boiling resumes.
Simmer, stirring occasionally, to keep rice from sticking to bottom.
Allow rice to cook fully, but not get mushy.
Add sugar, cardamom, saffron, almonds and pistachios.
Stir, simmer for 2 minutes, serve piping hot.
