Saffron Almond Milk (Kesar Badam Doodh)

Difficulty: Easy - Yield: 4 servings - Time: 15 minutes

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.


Ingredients

Preparation

For 4 servings:
  • 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.
