Heat the oven to 150C/130C fan/gas 2. Butter a 20cm round cake tin. Combine the ground almonds, sugars and butter in a large bowl with your fingers until they resemble breadcrumbs. Press half the mixture into the cake tin, creating an even base.
Add the eggs, yogurt, spices and 1 tsp of salt to the remaining mixture and, using a wooden spoon, combine until smooth. Pour into the tin and smooth the surface with a spatula. Sprinkle the flaked almonds and pistachios over the top.
Bake for 1 hr until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean – check after 50 mins to ensure it’s not colouring too quickly and cover the cake with foil if necessary.
Allow the cake to cool in the tin for 10 mins, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Decorate with dried rose petals (if using) and serve. The cake will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
