Cardamom Rose Dessert Shots

If you loved the rasmalai dessert shots recipe, these are for you! These milky cardamom and rose infused shots are the perfect treat for summer.

After I made my rasmalai shots recipe, I thought to myself that the only thing that could make these better would be adding rose! So I came up with this recipe. It's super quick and easy to throw together, but is packed with rich ingredients and elevated flavors.

  1. 1 can evaporated milk

  2. 2 cardamom pods

  3. 1 tbsp condensed milk

  4. 1 tbsp roohafza

  5. 1/2 tbsp Torani rose syrup

  6. 6 strands of saffron

  1. Start heating up your evaporated milk in a heavy bottom pan on a low heat.

  2. Break open your cardamom pods and remove the shells. Crush the seeds inside with a mortar and pestle, and then add this ground cardamom to your milk

  3. Add your condensed milk and saffron

  4. Simmer the mixture on low heat for 5-7 minutes and stir constantly during this time to prevent the milk from sticking to the bottom and burning

  5. Optional: Using a sieve, strain your milk into a heat-resistant bowl (to keep outany large crushed cardamom pieces)

  6. Stir in your roohafza and torani syrups

  7. Pour your mixture into dessert shot glasses and cool in the fridge for a few hours, or even overnight (I prefer cooling overnight for a thicker texture and better infusion of flavors)

  8. Once cooled, garnish with whipped cream
