Instructions
  1. Boil the milk in a deep non-stick pan on a high flame, while stirring twice in between. This will take approx. 4 to 5 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, combine the saffron and warm milk in a small bowl, mix well and keep aside.
  4. Add the sugar and saffron-milk mixture, mix well and cook on a medium flame for another 4 to 5 minutes, while stirring occasionally and scraping the sides of the pan.
  5. Simultaneously, combine the cornflour and the milk in a small bowl and mix well till the cornflour dissolves completely. Keep aside.
  6. Also combine the citric acid and 1 tbsp of water in a small bowl and mix well. Keep aside.
  7. Gradually add the cornflour-milk mixture and citric acid mixture to the boiling milk, mix well and cook on a medium flame for another 4 to 5 minutes or till the mixture resembles mava (khoya), while stirring continuously and scrapping the sides of the pan.
