  1. To make the pudding first ,boil milk with saffron flakes for 5 min.Add sugar and let it mix properly. Make a thick paste of water and corn starch and add slowly to the milk stirring constantly at medium flame.Cook for few minutes till you get a thick consistency of pudding stirring slowly.It usually take between 2-5 min.Once done cool it a bit.
  2. Grease the jelly moulds with little butter.Use a pastry brush or your finger to do so.Pour the pudding mixture into them and chill in refrigerator for 4-6 hour.
  3. Now take a heavy pan and mix all the ingredients and cook slowly at medium flame till you get a thick consistency.Rose syrup will give a nice color to the pomegranate compote.
  4. To make this salty nutty brittle, boil sugar and corn syrup at medium flame for 5-7 min.You can see the color changing to light brown at edge.Add salt,melon seeds and chopped pistachio to it and stir once.Cook for 4-5 min till you get a brown thick mixture.To check whether its done or not , do a small test. Drop a liquid ball with a spoon into a glass of cold water.If it immediately thicken and form hard ball in the water than your cooking is done.
  5. Immediately spread the liquid on a parchment paper or on a greased plate.spread it with the back side of a spoon.let it cool completely.break the disc into pieces.
  6. Well you can serve the way you want.Here how i did. Unmold the pudding into your serving plate.Put compote at the edge of pudding in a circular manner. Now place few brittle sticks on top.Garnish with some saffron flakes. Enjoy 🙂

    Sai Priya, the pudding looks so good and pretty. I am going to try the recipe soon. If it turns out good then I may prepare it for a pre wedding party (I have to make the dessert for 50 people). Just a few questions… Could I set this in a big tray and then cut into pieces to serve? Or will cutting it be difficult? What can I use instead of corn syrup? Do you think honey would do as I don’t get any corn syrup here?

  13. Sai Priya says

    Thanks for dropping by.I will suggest you to use disposal plastic cups instead of cutting into pieces..i have not tried any replacement so far for corn syrup .It gives the best result though
