Pour the milk into a saucepan and bring to just below simmering point, then remove the pan from the heat.
Do not allow it to boil.
Drain and squeeze out the gelatine and add to the milk.
Crush the cardamom pods to release the seeds and discard the pods.

When it comes to the boil, immediately remove the pan from the heat, stir in the milk mixture. Strain through a sieve to remove the cardamom seeds.
Pour into your ramekins or daroile moulds.
Chill in the refrigerator for several hours until set.
For the apricots:
Soften the apricots in the 250ml boiling water for up to an hour.
Remove and cut into strips, keeping the water.

Place in the sugar and the reserved water and let it simmer until syrupy.
To serve:
