Doodh Masala/ Milk Masala

As much as I love doing mega marathons, my challenges every six months surmount the previous ones…but this is something I enjoy as well…my final post on dry powders is the popular masala doodh mixture. While it is just throwing in few nuts and spices, I make it protein packed mixing in some things on and off usually thus avoiding the regular sugar laden milk additions.

The masala doodh is a popular beverage even for popular functions in marathi households. Haldi kumkum was one such event where this is made and served. Since it is served hot I used to hate it as a kid, but now I make it along with my kid who helps me grind it as per his whims and fancies playing with different nuts.

The good part is when he prepares it , he does not let us drink it , and uses it up very fast.

1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup cashew nuts
1/4 cup pistachios
1 tspn cardamom seeds
1/2 tspn nutmeg powder (optional)
2 tbsp sugar
1 pinch of saffron threads / kesar

1) Roughly crush them in a mortal until it resembles bread crumb like coarse
2) Store in an airtight container and use with more sugar added in the milk as needed

1) You can add wheat gluten/ roasted wheat flour / roasted ragi/ roasted sprouts powder
2) You can add a pinch of ginger/ turmeric when you want to treat cold/ cough or digestive problems along with this powder

Signing off this lovely mega marathon until next time…
