Rice 2 cups
Saffron (kesar) a pinch
Ghee 4 tablespoons
Green cardamoms 4
Sugar 1/2 cup
Milk 1/2 cup
Soak rice in four cups of water for half an hour. Drain.
Heat ghee in a pressure pan. Add green cardamoms, cloves and soaked rice and sauté.
Add three cups of water, sugar, raisins and chopped pistachios and mix.
Dissolve saffron in warm milk and add to the pan. When the rice is cooked a little, cover with the lid and cook on high heat till one whistle is given out.
Lower the heat and cook for ten minutes.

Use pure Saffron for an amazing taste.
