Secondly, take a small quantity (say about one spoon) of corn flour and mix well in about half cup of milk. Make sure there are no lumps.
And then, peel a ripe mango, de-seed and then blend the mango pulp into smooth puree.
Keep these entire aside for the time being.
Now, take a wide thick bottomed pan and add full fat milk to it. Heat until it boils and then simmer the flame to continue for prolonged time.
Keep stirring. You will see milk solids forming at the edges. Scrap the edges and add the thickened milk back.
Add sugar, cardamom powder, and the blended paste of saffron-almond-cashew. Mix well and keep stirring without any interval.
When milk attains half its original quantity, add the paste of corn flour & milk. Add little by little by stirring continuously making sure that no lumps are formed.

When the desired consistency if attained, switch off the flame and add mango puree. Mix well and allow cooling.
