Cooking steps

Make the Kiri Cream

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, add the milk and the cardamom pods. Bring to a boil, then remove from the heat and set aside for 10 minutes to allow the cardamom to infuse in the milk. Remove the cardamom pods.
  2. In a bowl, mash the Kiri square portions with a fork, add 1/3 of the cardamom infused milk and mix with a whisk. 3. Pour the Kiri mixture back into the pot with the remaining milk, add cornstarch and honey and cook on medium heat while whisking constantly until the mixture thickens.

Assemble the Mahalabia

  2. Just before serving, pour some rose syrup on top of the Mahalabia and decorate with pistachios and dried roses.
