Ingredients

This recipe requires a few very basic ingredients.

Milk- Use full-fat milk, I have used buffalo milk for this recipe.

Kesar/Saffron- Use good quality saffron or kesar.

Sugar- I have used khand which is also known as raw sugar, it is a healthier option than sugar. You can use sugar, brown sugar, or khand.

Almonds- Almonds are very thinly sliced, It tastes great with milk and you won’t realize that the milk has almonds. Slice it very thin with the help of a slicer.

How to make saffron milk

Add full-fat milk and kesar (saffron strands) in a saucepan or deep bottom pan. Give it a mix, and after a few seconds, kesar or saffron will start releasing its yellow color.

(Note– Use good quality kesar, I prefer MDH kesar or Lion brand saffron. It is easily available online as well as in local grocery stores.)

Boil the milk at medium flame, after 4 to 5 boils add sugar or khand(raw sugar) and thinly sliced almonds to it.

(Note– Slice the almond thinly with the help of a slicer.)

After 2 to 3 boils turn off the flame and transfer it to a serving glass. Serve it hot.

Top tips

  • Use good quality kesar or saffron for a delicious taste.
  • Don’t use too much sugar, I have used 2 tablespoons of khand which is raw sugar for this recipe as it is less sweet than normal sugar. If you’re using sugar use only 1 tablespoon.
  • You can also use cardamom powder for more flavors.
  • If you don’t like sliced almonds then skip them.
  • Serve it hot.
