Kesar Masala Milk

How to make Kesar Kaju Badam Masala Milk | Masala Doodh Recipe | Saffron & Cardamom Flavored Dry Fruit Masala Milk | Indian Exotic Spiced Milk

Hello Friends,

My today's blog post is an exotic, piping hot, delicious, lip smacking milk based saffron and cardamom flavored hot beverage, which is a delicious blend of nuts and spices. Sharing Kesar masala milk recipe with stepwise images.

Kesar Masala Milk gives you a heavenly delightful experience with every sip of milk. The addition of nuts and spices works great in this beverage as not only enhance the taste but will also make it as one of the excellent healthy drinks. The best part it can be enjoyed hot as well as in chilled form. This is my dad's most preferred drink and like all my other recipes, I love to prepare this beverage as this is truly fun and exciting recipe for me, especially crushing saffron strands. 

For me this is heaven, Kesar masala milk means good old beautiful memories and I would rather call this as my exams drink. Yes, you heard it right. Exams drink... in my school days, mom use to order almonds and saffron for all of us that to savings from her monthly budget.. so that we can do well in our studies.. . Thank you sooooo much mom and dad for your unconditional love and care. Feeling truly blessed.

For my today's recipe I also want to thank my best buddy, my dearest cousin sister Meena, who gifted me this very beautiful saffron mortar and pestle set and my dear friend Manisha who bought premium quality saffron all the way from Dubai..
