  • 3 cups milk
  • 6 cardamom pods
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup walnuts or 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 4 tbsp single cream
  • 1 tbsp butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Bring milk to a boil with saffron threads, cardamom and cinnamon, while stirring frequently to prevent scalding.

  4. Remove from heat, and stir in the sugar, coconut and nuts.
  5. Beat in the egg, single cream and butter.
  6. Transfer to an ovenproof dish.
  7. Sprinkle with nutmeg if desired.
  8. Bake for 20-30 minutes until set or lightly golden.
  9. Garnish with chopped nuts or dribbled with additional cream.
