    Soak Almonds for 3 - 4 hours and peel the skin. Put the skinless almonds into a blender and add the milk to them. Blend the mixture to form a coarse paste (the same consistency as sooji/ rava).

    Now add the sugar, saffron strands to the mixture and stir to mix well. Cook the mixture on medium heat, stirring constantly to prevent it from scorching or burning. This can happen very easily, so be extra careful. Stir constantly!
