Direction To Make

  • Take a large deep pan, a strainer and a muslin cloth. Set the strainer on the pan and spread the muslin cloth on the strainer.
  • Add fresh curd to that muslin cloth. Lift all corners of the cloth and tightly tie them together so that the curd does not come out from any side.

  • If it is not possible to hang curd's muslin cloth in the fridge, you can use a pot and strainer. Place the curd's cloth in a sieve and a sieve in the pot, place some weight on it so that all the water of the curd gets drained.
  • Add saffron to 1 tablespoon of warm milk and mix well until it dissolves completely.
  • After 4-5 hours, when all the water comes out, open the muslin cloth and transfer the thick curd in a large bowl.
  • Add sugar, milk saffron mixture and green cardamom powder to it and thoroughly mix using a whisk or electric hand beater until it becomes smooth and the sugar dissolves completely.
  • Add chopped cashews and almonds and mix well.
