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 ground rice, 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 low-calorie sweetener.
Pour the mixture into 4 individual earthenware bowls while still warm. Sprinkle sliced pistachios and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Serve chilled.
Sweet dishes with empty calories are a definite no-no for the calorie conscious. Therefore we have suggested the use of a sugar substitute. However, please check with your doctor before using it.
