This is a sweet creamy dessert. It can be made very think like a custard or could be made into a drinking consistency and can be served cold or hot. During hot summer months,I like this dish served cold with lots of chopped almonds and used have it often before heading to my tuition’s. Its fills my tummy up and keeps me active during my classes in the evening. This hardly only 20 minutes to prepare,provided you have blanched almonds handy.
so here is this simple easy recipe.
30 kernels of blanched Almonds. ( slice 5 kernels almonds )
2 cups of milk
4-5 table spoon of sugar.
few saffron strands.
In a pan add in the milk and reduce it to 2/3rd or to a thick consistently. Keep stirring in between and cook in medium flame.
Meanwhile make a coarse paste with 20 -25 kernels of almonds,some sugar,cardamon.
When the milk as reduced to desired consistency add the paste and mix well.
stir constantly and let is reduced to creamy texture. Now add in the remaining sugar and mix well.
Add in the saffron stands for more creamy yellow colour.(this step is optional)
once the drink is in preferred consistency add in the sliced almonds and stir well and turn of the heat.
Once the drink is cooled ,transfer it into a pitcher and refrigerate it and serve cold as I have served to experience a refreshing creamy taste.
