1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 cup half and half
2 tbsp Badam, crushed (Almonds)
2 tbsp pista, crushed (Pistachio)
1/2 tsp Elachi powder(Cardamom)
1/2 tsp saffron
2 tbsp. hot milk ( to soak the saffron in)
3 tbsp sugar
Soak the saffron strands in the 2 tbsps of hot milk and set aside.
Pour the milk and half & half in a pan and bring to a boil. Add in the almonds, pistachio, cardamom, saffron milk and sugar. Mix well and let this mixture simmer on medium heat for 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat and cool it down to room temperature. At this point you could serve it hot or warm. It will be delicious and comforting on a cold winter day!
If you’d like to make it into a cold drink (which in my opinion is a better way to serve) blend this milk mixture with ice cubes until whipped and creamy. Serve cold in a frosted glass.
