Sweet and sweet

Ferni: A typical Afghan dessert, here in a sales counter of a restaurant in Kunduz

That's what you need:
1L milk
80g cornflour mixed with 20 tablespoons of water
3 heaped tablespoons of sugar
2 teaspoons cardamom
50g almonds (slices)
25g pistachios (chopped)

And this is how it works:
Bring the milk to the boil in a pot. Remove the pan from the hot plate and then mix the starch into the milk, stirring constantly. Add a little sugar. Bring everything to the boil. Allow to simmer for 15 minutes at the lowest level. Stir several times to prevent the sugar and milk from burning. Finally, add the cardamom, pistachios and almonds and stir again.
Let it cool down and enjoy your meal!
