Masala Dudh Recipe
Masala dudh/Masala milk is flavored milk with dry fruits, spices and saffron. I remember Aai making masala dudh for Haldi Kumkum and Ganesh Utsav at home. I loved having it warm, especially with some sabudana vadas It can be served chilled also.
Masala dudh in made from the masala dudh powder which can be made in advance and kept refrigerated. You can get the masala milk powder readymade also in stores but I definitely prefer homemade.
This spiced warm milk tastes great on chilly evenings.
One more reason for making this masala milk was the earthen kulads which i bought from Mumbai. I loved serving the milk in the kulads
