* You can use jaggery (unrefined brown sugar) instead of sugar * In case the cashews are old you can also roast them like the raisins to add more flavour * You can soak the saffron in little water for a few mins & add that to the milk mixture * For garnishing you could also use: rose petals, strawberries, grapes, etc instead of the nuts & saffron strands.
