I prepare masala doodh at times and somehow never took pics for the website. In fact I had made masala milk during this kojagiri poornima but again did not take pics. So a couple of days back made masala milk again and took pics.

I make masala milk in an easy way and it can be made instantly without any pre work or preparation. I grind the nuts to a semi coarse powder. Alternatively the nuts can also be chopped and then added.

In winters masala milk is good to have as the dry fruits help in keeping the body warm. While making in summers, blanch the dry fruits so that their heat is reduced. In winters I add a few cloves in the recipe, but can be skipped. In summers you can add cooling ingredients like rose petals. Nuts and dry fruits of your choice can be added and some variations can be done in the recipe. This masala milk recipe can also be halved or doubled.
