    2 cups milk
    1/2 cup cream beaten smooth
    1 tsp. sugar
    salt to taste
    1/2 tsp. cumin seeds
    3 cloves
    1" cinnamon
    3 cardamoms
    1 bay leaf
    2 tbsp. ghee
    1 cup canned chopped mixed fruit (drained)
    2-3 edible rose petals


Wash and soak rice for 15-20 minutes.

Mix milk, cream, sugar, salt. Drain rice, keep aside.

Heat ghee in a heavy pan.

Add cumin seeds, cinnamon, bayleaf, cardamoms, cloves.

Allow to splutter. Add rice and fry in ghee for 2 minutes.
