Soak almonds in warm water. Later, remove their peel, slice them and set aside.
(If using) soak the saffron in ½ cup warm milk and keep ready.
In a saucepan or thick-bottomed kadhai, add the water, apple, dates and sugar. Boil for 10 minutes. Allow to cool.
In a similar vessel, heat the ghee and roast the almonds, pistachios as well as raisins. Remove them from the heat and keep aside.
In the same pan, add the vermicelli and saute for 2-3 minutes.
Pour in the milk and cook for 10 minutes on medium flame, stirring continuously.
Add the apple-date mixture to the milk and stir well for another 5 minutes. Turn the heat to low.
Add the soaked saffron or cardamom powder to the vessel at this point.
Finally, add the roasted dry fruits to the milk and mix. Cook for another 5 minutes. Taste to adjust sweetness.
Enjoy immediately or refrigerate and serve chilled later on.
