Vegan Iranian Yakh Dar Behesht (Ice in Heaven)!

Even just for a minute... I'm not entirely sure why it's called Ice in Heaven - when I first read the name I thought it must be a milky frozen sweet, but then when I went to make it I find that it isn't frozen at all - it's just set with cornstarch just like Turkish Delight. It was delightfully simple to make and had a milky sweet taste with a lovely creamy consistency and colourful crunchy pistachios all over the top - what more could you ask for in a dessert? The only thing you really need to know about it is that you have to stir it constantly to stop it going lumpy. I have to confess that I dropped the ball for a moment and ended up with some big sticky bits in mine but I managed to save it by putting the electric beaters through it on the highest setting and it whisked out the lumps. But learn from my mistake and just stir it continuously while you have it on the stove! Place cold water in a large bowl and add the cornstarch. Place the almond milk and rice flour in a saucepan and stir well to dissolve. Add the cornstarch and place the saucepan over a low heat. Stir continuously while the liquid heats up and bring it to a simmer. Simmer for about 10 minutes or until it becomes the consistency of thick custard (stirring continuously!). Pour into a large wide rectangular dish (like a big lasagne dish) and smooth the surface out level. Spread the crushed pistachios over the top and serve. Persian food is so easily veganizeable.
