Almond slivers

In a thick based pot, add ghee and fry vermicelli till lightly toasted, add powdered spices, soaked white rice and sago. Give it a quick toss then add the the 1c water to prevent it from getting caught. Add the 2l milk and cook till the rice is soft.Add saffron and stir, then add fresh cream, milk powder, sugar, almonds and coconut. Bring to a boil. Thicken to prefered consistency. Top with toasted almonds, Coconut, and a pinch of fresh Elachi. Pistachios are also great.Note I had fresh cream, but you can use condensed milk and eliminate or adjust sugar to taste. I also prefer freshly crushed Elachi to the powder.Enjoy.
