  1. Soak the grain usually for 30 min to 1 hour.
  2. This is optional but I personally find that it reduces the cooking time considerably.
  3. Heat the water in a saucepan and then add the rice.
  4. Bring it to a boil.
  5. You will find in about 10-15 min most of the water has been absorbed by the rice.
  6. Now add in the milk, bring down the heat to low-med, cover partially and let it cook for another 10-15min.
  7. Take care to stir it on and off, so that it does not stick to the bottom.
  8. Add the sugar, saffron, spices and give it a stir.
  9. Cook for another 10 min until the rice is tender. You will also see that most of the milk has been absorbed. You can add in additional milk, if required at the time of serving.
  10. Garnish with toasted sliced almonds and pistachios (or any other nuts you prefer).
  11. I am assuming that this process can be quickened by using pressure cooker and cooking the brown rice with milk.
  12. You can further make this creamier by adding evaporated milk and add raisins too.
