  1. Combine the saffron and warm milk in a small bowl, mix and keep aside.
  2. Heat milk in a heavy bottomed pan and bring it to boil, once the milk comes to a boil, turn the heat to low and stir the milk continuously and reduce the milk to more then half of its quantity.
  3. Once it is reduced, add sugar, milkmaid, mava, cardamom powder, saffron and chopped pistachios. Mix it well.
  4. Turn off the heat and allow the mixture to cool. Now pour the mixture in the kulfi moulds, seal them tightly and freeze them in the refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours.
  5. Before serving allow the moulds to remain outside the refrigerator for 2 minutes and then unmould them, you can insert the wooden skewer stick and pull it out.
  6. Garnish it with chopped pistachios and serve it immediately.

My Tip:

We can add chopped almonds as well.
