This week, Rubina, Mehwish, and I are sharing traditional, festive recipes to celebrate the Muslim holiday Eid. To start off the Eid menu, I'm sharing a recipe for masala milk powder. Masala doodh or milk is a sweetened milk drink flavored with nuts and spices. A masala is a spice blend and today, we'll be adding nuts to it to make a powder that can be mixed with milk.
Masala milk is a popular drink in Pakistan and India where most people drink it cold in the summer to cool off. It's also very popular for its health benefits. Drinking a warm cup of masala milk at night will help you sleep because of the calming flavors. A warm cup in the winter will protect you from the cold. It's also a delicious and healthy way to have kids drink milk.
- The powder can be stored in the fridge up to 2 months.
- Use any type of sweetener or milk you like, but the recipe below is tested and tried and delicious.
