-1 tablespoon hot milk
- ½ tablespoon cardamom powder
-measuring cup / spoons
-metal mixing bowl
-mortar and pestle
Step 2: Hot & Cold
First, toss a metal mixing bowl into the freezer, and chill your serving cups in the refrigerator.
Next, heat up a small pan for a minute or two, then when the pan is hot, turn the stove off. Heat the saffron in the pan for 30 - 45 seconds.
Step 3: Crush & Steep
Quickly remove the saffron from the pan and grind in a mortar and pestle. Place in a small cup. Microwave the milk for 10 seconds, and add it to the saffron. Set the cup aside.
Step 4: Mix It Up
Mix the cream in a chilled bowl with a hand mixer until it gets nice and thick... this may take a while. The cream should stick to the beater. Add the rest of the ingredients, and beat for another minute.
