How to make Kesar Pista Rabri

  1. Refrigeration time- 01 hour.
  2. In a heavy bottomed pan, add milk, bring to a boil. Add the sugar and cardamom powder and simmer over a low flame.
  3. Do not stir too often, as a layer of cream should form over it. After the layer is formed, keep pushing it away from the sides towards the centre with the help of a wooden spatula.
  4. Keep stirring the milk below it gently to avoid scorching / burning. Repeat the process till 1/3 rd of the volume of milk is left.
  5. The wider the vessel and the richer the milk, the faster it will thicken. When done, the colour changes to a beige-cream / off white, and the cream that was pushed aside, collects in layers. Add in the chopped nuts.
  6. Remove from the flame. Let it cool.
  7. Transfer to a serving dish / clay pots. Refrigerate to chill for at least 1 hour.
  8. For the Serving: Serve chilled broiled saffron and pistachio nut slivers.
My Tip: You may use silver leaf to top this dessert to make it more attractive, but remember to apply it before you garnish the dessert. Make sure that the milk does not burn as, then it is next to impossible to rectify the burnt milk. You may add a few drops of kewra essence or natural pine essence / Rose water when the Rabri is done.
