Masala-milk-RECIPE
      Masala milk recipe has various versions. I never made on my own, but always wanted to try it out at home. I never used to like the masala pal they give in marriages. But now some how my taste changed and wanted to try it out. It is believed to give a good sleep, the recipe source is here. But I liked to add ‘panag karkandu’ palm sugar crystals in place of sugar and also added a pinch of pepper powder. Also skipped nuts like pistachios,almonds or cashews for garnishing. The milk is very flavourful and delicious!

Ingredients

Milk 2 cups
Edible camphor 1 pinch
Almonds 6 to  8
Saffron A pinch
Sugar or palm sugar crystals 2 tblsp

Cinnamon 2 small pieces
Pepper powder(optional) 2 pinches

PALM SUGAR CRYSTALS

 

Method

  1. Soak safforn in luke warm milk and almonds in hot water for 15 minutes.1-masala
  2. Peel the skin of almonds and grind it to smoothly with little water.2-badam

  4. Add the soaked saffron milk and simmer for 5-6 minutes. Lastly add palm sugar crystals and pepper and give it a boil.4-saffron
  
If you want you can discard the whole masalas before you add almonds by straining the milk. Enjoy the milk warm !
masala+milk+recipe

Notes
  • Choose good quality saffron and make sure you add not more than a pinch,adding more will spoil the taste.
  • You can add chopped nuts if you like it.
  • Some times palm sugar crystals has impurities. You can strain it by dissolving it in hot water.
  • Adding crushed elachi and edible camphor gives a great taste. So this is the main flavour in it. You can skip cloves and cinnamon too.
  • This is my own version, so there may be some differences from authentic recipe!
