Masala Milk is a highly flavourful milk, which is derived from the Maharastrain cuisine. It is a very popular drink in India and almost as famous as Masala Chai .

To make Masala milk, you need basic ingredients that are easily available in our Indian kitchens. All you need is milk, sugar, masala milk powder and few saffron strands. It is very quick and easy to make. Boiling all the ingredients together helps in extracting flavor and makes the milk taste more flavourful and magical.

Masala Milk Powder for Masala Doodh is made with rich ingredients like cashew nuts (kaju) you need to keep an eye on it as it tends to get brown immediately , almonds (badam) you can remove the almond skin if you wish to, pistachios (while storing them you need to make sure you store them in the refrigerator as they turn randic ,cardamoms (elaichi), Black pepper (kalimirch), sugar, nutmeg (jaiphal) powder and saffron (kesar) strands that help giving colour to the masala milk. All these ingredients are ground together in a blender and you can store this masala milk powder in air-tight container for one to 2 months. It is also easily available in markets and grocery shops.

As a cranky kid, I would make a fuss about drinking milk and masala milk would be a solution. When I would fuss about milk and mom would make masala milk made from masala milk powder as alternative and I would gulp it down in seconds. She would also make it for family members who’d be sick and also for last minute guests.

Having a puja or bhajan at house, then serve masala milk.
