  1. Soak saffron in the milk and let it soak till you prepare everything.
  2. Clean, peel, chop and pressure cook the carrots along with the water in a pressure cooker till the cooker lets out two whistles. The carrots should be cooked.
  3. Open the lid and let it cool.
  4. Blend the cooled carrots, along with the water into a smooth paste.
  5. Pour this mixture into a deep casserole.
  6. Add saffron infused milk and let it come to a boil.
  7. Add sugar and cardamom powder to this and boil for further 5 mins.
  8. Garnish it with more cardamom powder.
