6 tbs cornstarch
3 1/2 cups milk
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 tsp cardamom seeds
1-2 tbs finely ground pistachio


Make a paste out of the cornstarch and a bit of the milk. Mix well, and heat the remaining milk in a sauce pan until it is hot. Add the sugar and stir constantly or else it will not turn out right. When the milk is close to boiling, slowly add the paste. Bring this to a boil while stirring continuously then lower the heat and cook for 3-4 minutes. Pour into a glass pan or dish and decorate it by pouring the pistachios over the top.
