A traditional Indian beverage, Kesar Badam Doodh (which translates to Saffron Almond Milk from Hindi) is a delicious golden milk that is served during Hindu weddings and celebrations. Served warm and frothy, this lightly-sweet milk concoction will make you feel nice and cozy during the winter season.
- 4 cups milk
- Large pinch of Rumi saffron
- 1 Tbsp almond slivers
- 2 cardamom pods, whole
- 1 Tbsp honey
Using a mortar and pestle, roughly grind the almonds. Once almonds are roughly ground, add saffron threads and crush lightly.
In saucepan, combine all ingredients and bring to a boil on medium heat. Make sure to stir frequently as to not to allow the milk to scorch. You will see the saffron turn the milk into a beautiful golden color.
Once milk begins to boil, turn heat down to low and simmer for 5 minutes.
Remove cardamom pods and serve warm.
