Ingredients Serving: 5

  1. 1 litre full cream milk
  2. 2 tbsp sugar (you can add/reduce as per taste but 2 tbsp is fine for me)
  3. 3 – 4 saffron strands (soaked in 2 tbsp milk)
  4. 2 – 3 drops kesar essence (optional)


  1. Heat the milk in a Kadai or Wok on the lowest heat.Soon it will start simmering and form a “skin” or a transparent layer on the surface.Remove this layer with a fork and keep sticking to the walls of the Wok.
  2. After 30 minutes the milk would have reduced by half.At this point do not stick the skin to the walls but drop it into the boiling milk itself.In another 30 minutes the milk would have reduced to almost 1/4 of its original volume.
  3. It would be a lovely rosy pink colour and start boiling vigorously.Take off heat at this stage.
  4. Scrape the skin collected on the sides and mix into the hot,thickened milk.Stir well and add saffron strands and sugar.Cool to room temperature and add essence.
  5. Serve at room temperature or chilled.In Winters,serve warm!
