Method

  1. Melt the ghee in a heavy saucepan over a medium heat. Add the vermicelli and cook for 2-3 mins, stirring often, until golden brown.
  2. Add the cardamom, saffron and 750ml milk; stir and bring to the boil. Bubble over a medium-low heat for 8-10 mins until the vermicelli nests are cooked through, stirring often to prevent the milk from catching. Stir in the granulated sugar and cook for 2-3 mins until dissolved, then add the nuts and raisins.
  3. Whisk the custard powder with 125ml milk in a small bowl until smooth. Pour into the pan, whisking constantly, and cook for 3-4 mins until it starts to thicken. Add a little more milk if it seems too thick – it should be creamy and just thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  4. Remove from the heat and transfer to a large bowl. Leave to cool to room temperature, then cover and transfer to the fridge for at least 4 hrs.
  5. Divide the crushed biscuits between 6 x 250ml tall glasses. Top with the pomegranate seeds, mango and grapes, and pour over the chilled custard. Top with pistachios and raspberries (if using) to serve.
