Soak the saffron strands in a tsp of warm milk.
Soak the rice in water for about one hour. Drain the water and grind it to a paste. The paste should not be too coarse.
In a heavy bottomed pan, combine the milk, sugar and the rice paste together and boil. Cook for about 15 to 20 minutes until the mixture is creamy and thick and coats the back of a spoon.
Add the saffron and cardamom, mix well. Remove from heat. Add the rose water and mix well.
Refrigerate for around 2 hours until chilled and set. Garnish with slivered nuts, rose petals and serve.
