  • Green Cardamom (hari elaichi) ( 1)
  • Rose petals (gulaab pankhudiya) (1/2 tsp)
  • Honey (shehed) (1 tsp optional)


  • Heat water in a tea pan over medium heat.
  • Add saffron strands, cinnamon, cloves, rose petals and cardamom to it and let it simmer for 5 mins over medium heat.
  • Turn off the heat and add green tea to the water.
  • Cover the pan with a lid and let the tea steep for a minute.
  • Strain the kahwa in serving cups.
