Method
Bring milk to a boil in a microwave or on stovetop for 5 mins till the milk thickens a bit. In another vessel add 1 tsp ghee and roast the nuts on low heat and set aside. Cook vermicelli like pasta,drain water then add it to the milk,add saffron and stir to blend well. When the vermicelli is well blended add sugar and bring to a boil till the milk thickens a bit, add chopped pistachios, raisins and roasted cashews. Add rose water and stir to blend well.
