Masala Milk- Warm Milk with Spices and Nuts

Masala Milk

I used to be a cinnamon girl, but the last few months I’m really into cardamom. It doesn’t mean I don’t like cinnamon anymore but I just don’t think about it on daily basis and start to craving more cardamom taste on my food, dessert or even on my drink.

I like to try something new and make an experiment for breakfast. When others are busy thinking about what clothes to wear for tomorrow, I was busy thinking about what should I eat for breakfast. I like to enjoy my breakfast with a warm drink such as coffee, tea, cappuccino or chai tea. Although I’m not really like milk but had too much caffeine, and I decide it had to be milk this week.

  • 2 cups milk
  • 8 peeled pistachios, chopped finely
  • 3 whole cardamom pods, crushed

  • 2 cloves
  • A pinch of saffron
  • honey or brown sugar


  • Soaked saffron in a lukewarm milk for about 15 minutes.
  • Bring milk, spices and chopped nuts to boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer gently for about 5 minutes or until the small bubble start to appear, turn it off and leave it to steep for 15 minutes.
  • Strain the milk and discard the spices. Reheat the milk and stir in sugar or honey.
