Almond Moulds

My toddler is 20mths old today. I can’t believe how fast she is growing. She is trying to say whatever we say. It’s so much fun to watch her grow. Coming to today’s recipe I wanted something cold and healthy too. It was so good. My husband and daughter loved them.

It makes app 15 moulds.

Almond moulds


Blanched Almonds – 1/4 cup
Pistachios – 10
Cardamom Powder – 1 teaspoon
Saffron – 1 large pinch
Sugar – 1/2 cup or according to taste
Milk – 4 and 1/2 cups


Soak pistachios for 2 to 3 hours. Peal the skin.

Now grind the almonds with some milk. Make it into a smooth paste.

Add the ground mixture into the rest of the milk.

Add the saffron and cardamom.

Bring this mixture up to boil.

Keep on string to avoid the skin forming on top of milk.

Milk should come to a full boil.

Finally add sugar and pistachios,  let it cool and pour into the moulds.

Freeze them for few hours and enjoy.
