Rose syrup, saffron, cardamom and pistachios turn a plain tub of vanilla ice cream into an exotic dessert! If you want to enhance the pistachio flavour toast the nuts on a baking tray in a hot oven for 5 to 10 minutes, or until they are slightly toasted.
You can usually find rose syrup in Asian supermarkets.
What a great, light and tasty dessert after some heavy hot curries! Couldn't find rose syrup so substituted rose water in the same quantity without problems, also we only used 0.1 grams of saffron - very tasty. - 30 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was FANTASTIC! The light, refreshing combination of flavors was the perfect ending to a spicy Indian dinner - very simple & elegant. Thanks for a great recipe! - 23 May 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
What a nice ice cream.I couldn't find rose syrup but I used rose water,3 cap fulls. The rose flavor is not overpowering and makes this ice cream very delicate. The spices add a nice flavor making it very Indian and with the crunch of pistachio nuts this dessert is a wonderful way to finish a dinner. I used some drops of food coloring to make it pink simulating the color of a rose. - 31 Mar 2016 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
