Grind the rice with 1/2 cup water.
Heat the milk in a pan, add the rice paste and keep stirring till it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Add the sugar and cook till the mixture thickens again to coat the back of the spoon.
Remove from heat; transfer the thickened milk into individual earthen containers or glass bowls.
Sprinkle rose water and half the dry fruits.
Grind the saffron in a mortar and pestle. Sprinkle this over the dry fruits.
Garnish with the remaining dry fruits, green cardamom powder and silver leaves. Refrigerate to set. Serve cold.
