  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Serves: 4


  • 1 liter of creamy milk
  • 10 cardamom seeds (may leave out if not readily available)
  • 10-15 strands of saffron, crushed, soaked in 1 tsp. warm milk (may leave if not available easily)
  • sugar to taste
  • ¼ cup chopped and thinly sliced almonds
  • ¼ cup of chopped and thinly sliced pistachios


  1. Put cardamom in the milk and bring to boil.
  2. Reduce the heat and continue to stir till reduced by around one-third – care should be taken that the milk particles does not get stuck to the pan as it will spoil the taste.
  3. Remove cardamoms from milk by using a strainer.
  4. Add the copped almonds, pistachios and crushed saffron.
  5. Pour the mixtures in small containers or cups.
  6. Freeze until firm.
  7. Remove from the refrigerator about 5 minutes before serving.


  • If cardamom seeds or saffron are unavailable, you may add the chocolate powder of your choice before putting the cups into freezer.
