Cream and Nut Sauce

A deliciously creamy sauce with pistachio nuts and almonds. This cream and nut sauce is traditionally served as an accompaniment to “lamb grilled on skewers” but may be served with any grilled, sliced meats.


  • 50g unsalted pistachio nuts
  • 20g blanched almonds
  • ¼ tsp. cardamom seeds
  • 200ml milk
  • 1 tablespoon clarified butter
  • 200ml fresh cream
  • 1 tsp. salt


  1. Blend the pistachio nuts, almonds, cardamom seeds and milk in an electric blender and blend at high speed, until the mixture is reduced to a smooth purée.
  2. Heat the butter over moderate heat in a heavy, medium- sized saucepan.
  3. Add the puréed nut mixture, the cream and the salt. Bring to the boil, stirring constantly with a spoon until the sauce thickens.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and leave for about 20 minutes before serving.
