Saffron adds incredible depth and richness to this simple breakfast. Ghee is optional but highly recommended at the finish.
Scant pinch of saffron
3 cups milk (plain or almond)
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
Pinch of sea salt
1/2 cup cream of wheat
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons ghee (optional)
Pistachios for garnish
Bring the saffron threads and milk to a boil and add the cardamom and salt. Lower the heat.
In a steady stream, add the cream of wheat, whisking continually until it is completely incorporated and there are no lumps.
Lower the heat to its lowest setting, cover and simmer for another 2 to 3 minutes.
Once prepared, cream of wheat will clump up within minutes. If not serving it immediately, add more milk or water to thin it out, whisking constantly.
Swirl in the honey and ghee just before serving and garnish with chopped pistachios.
Add sliced banana or other fruit in place of honey.
Top with a mixture of granola or seeds and nuts of your choice.
