  • ¾ teaspoon green cardamom powder

Cooking tips

  • Sprinkle slices of pistachio before refrigerating to add to its flavor.


  • Bring the milk to a boil in a deep non-stick pan. Lower the heat and simmer, stirring continuously, till it reduces by half.
  • Add the rice flour, mixed with a little water, and stir well to prevent lumps from forming. Bring the mixture to a boil.
  • When it starts to thicken, lower the heat and simmer for a couple of minutes, stirring continuously. Add the cardamom powder and saffron, and mix well.
  • When the mixture attains a thick custard-like consistency, remove from heat and stir in the Sugar Free Natura Sweet Drops.
  • Pour the mixture into four individual earthenware bowls while still warm. Refrigerate for at least two hours.
