Steep the saffron threads and cardamom pods in the hot rosewater for at least 15 minutes. Cook the rice in the water with the salt for 8 minutes, drain and reserve the water. Pour the honey over the hot rice. Heat the ghee in a large pan. Add the sweetened rice to the ghee, pour the rosewater mixture over the top and poke 3 holes in the rice. Cover tightly, and cook for 25 minutes, or until tender.
