4 cups whole milk ½ cup almonds 2 cups hot water 1 tsp ground green cardamom ⅓ cup sugar ½ tsp saffron
Soak the almonds in hot water for about 20 mins or soak them in regular room temperature water overnight. Bring the milk to a boil along with the saffron and cardamom and let it simmer. Meanwhile, peel the almonds (just slide the skin off the almond and it should slip right through) and reserve about 10 almonds. Grind the rest to a very fine paste without adding any water. Add this almond paste to the simmering milk and let it cook for 4-5 mins in it. Keep the heat to medium-low and keep stirring it, so the milk does not stick to the bottom of the pan and burn. Meanwhile, slice the reserve 10 almonds and add them to the milk. Add sugar and stir till the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and serve hot, warm or cold.
