Masala Milk- Mums Recipe.


Mothers day is celebrated all over the world, in the UK it is usually celebrated in March, however in other parts of the world its celebrated in May. Mothers are special and there can never be too many days to honor their status. This May, Mayuri Patel a very good blogger friend of mine who writes at  Mayuris Jikoni has set a challenge to create a post dedicated to your mother.

My mother passed away when I was very young, however I still have fond memories of my mum mostly about her cooking. She was a wonderful cook and homemaker and she spent endless hours in the kitchen creating scrumptious dishes.
As a child I was a picky eater or so my family tell me and I still remember my mum encouraging me to drink milk which I hated. However I never had any problems gulping down this delicious Masala milk she used to make. The masala milk was flavored with saffron, cardamom, nutmeg and had a blend of  mixed nuts which are rich in protein, fibre and essential fats. When we were running a temperature or had a cold she used to add a pinch of turmeric to the milk too. This was definitely "Mothers love and goodness in a glass."

You can make the milk masala in bulk and store it in an air tight jar to use as and when needed.
