Masala milk powder with step by step photos. Sharing the recipe for healthy masala milk powder to make at home during winters.
Masala milk powder is a special blend with various mixed nuts, spices, saffron and milk powder. There are many top brands selling this milk masala powder also known a s kesar badam powder like Everest milk masala powder, mtr badam mix etc. I have purchased and tasted both these brands and kind of liked them too. But once I made this masala paal at home I never bought those milk masala powder from shops. You can whip up delicious badam milk in no time with this powder instead of badam kheer too. Just add some condensed milk to the milk while making as dessert.
Masala milk is a family favorite and I often make it during winter evenings. This masala milk powder will make the regular masala milk even healthier. Addition of nuts and saffron makes this masala milk powder a power packed one. This masala dhoodh powder is a great source of nutrition for growing toddlers and kids. When making for them you can make it into a fine powder without specs of nuts if you wish.
What is added in masala milk powder if you ask me, I would say some basic spices and nuts of your choice. Saffron can be added for some nice flavor and health benefits too. I prefer to add saffron. Saffron is expensive and one should know to procure original saffron properly. So another option is to add turmeric powder instead of saffron. I however add both saffron and turmeric powder for their health benefits.
Drinking a glass of warm milk with masala milk powder or even humble pepper turmeric powder ensures sound sleep and overnight recovery during winters.
To make masala milk powder we need almonds, pistachios, cashews, grated nutmeg, cardamom pods, milk powders, saffron, turmeric powder. I have added raw cane sugar in this masala milk powder recipe.
Now to make masala milk with this homemade masala milk powder:
Bring milk to a boil.
Add 3 teaspoons masala milk powder to 1 cup of milk and stir well. You can adjust sugar if needed.
Serve hot or chill and serve as per taste.
I also use this masala milk powder in badam kheer, cookies, cakes,kheer, kulfi recipes.
This masala dhoodh powder keeps well for a month when stored airtight at room temperature. It keeps well for 2-3 months in refrigerator.
