  • Bowl
  • Mixer with whisk
  • Freezer safe container


  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 14 oz condensed milk
  • ¼ tsp rose water/essence I used Nielsen Masey Rose Water
  • ¾ tsp cardamom ground
  • ½ tsp saffron
  • 2 tbsp milk warm
  • ¼ cup khoya/mawa if frozen remember to defrost, 40g, 4oz


  • Crush saffron and put in warm milk to bloom.

  • Mix condensed milk, mawa, cardamom and rose water in a bowl. Whisk to break apart mawa pieces so there aren't any big chunks (unless you like that texture). Last, whisk in the bloomed saffron. Set aside.

  • Take heavy cream out of fridge. Whisk heavy cream until stiff peaks form. In a Kitchenaid mixer, it takes only about 3 minutes. You will have a big bowl of whipped cream. Gently, fold in the condensed milk mixture and mix with a spoon to combine. Don't mix too roughly as that takes the air out of the whipped cream. Optionally, mix in gulab jamun pieces and rose petals.

  • Pour into freezer safe container. Freeze for minimum of 6 hours. 8 hours or overnight is ideal as freezer temperature may vary.
