  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup milk (whole milk or reduced fat)
  • 2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 small pinch saffron, crushed with your fingertips
  • 2 tablespoons raw pistachios, chopped


  • Combine all ingredients (except pistachios) in a mason jar or a container and stir well. 
  • Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight (at least 6 hours and up to 2 days). 
  • Uncover, add chopped pistachios and stir well to distribute the nuts and saffron. 


Cardamom powder - Freshly ground cardamom is highly preferred. But, it is not practically possible to grind 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder. So, I usually grind a handful of green cardamoms in a dry grinder until finely ground. Transfer to a quart size zip lock bag, seal well and store in the freezer and use whenever required.
