DIRECTIONS

  • Boil the sugar, water and saffron together to make a light syrup, set aside.
  • Melt the ghee or butter in a deep pan over medium heat, blending in the farina and stirring constantly so that the mixture will not burn.
  • Add the sultanas and almonds.
  • Within 3 or 4 minutes, the mixture should be a light brown.
  • Add the saffron syrup (use caution as it will splatter) and continue stirring constantly.
  • Turn the heat to its highest and cook quickly until the mixture is the consistency of mush and the ghee just begins to separate.
  • Remove from heat immediately, and allow to cool.
  • Serve hot or warm as a dessert.
