Ingredients

  • 1 litre Full Fat Milk
  • 1/4 cup Khoya Crumbled
  • 25-30 strands Saffron
  • 10-12 Almonds Slivered
  • 10-12 Cashew Nuts Slivered
  • 10-12 Pistachios Slivered
  • 1 tsp Poppy Seeds
  • 1 tsp Chironji
  • 2-3 Seedless Dates Chopped
  • 4 tsp Sugar Adjust according to your taste

Instructions

  1. Soak the saffron strands in 2-3 tbsp of milk for 2 hours.

  2. Heat milk in a pan.

  3. Add khoya and cook for 5 mins.

  4. Add saffron soaked in milk, almonds, cashew nuts, pistachios, poppy seeds, chironji and dates and cook on low heat for 40-45 minutes.

  5. Now add sugar and mix well.

  6. Serve hot or chilled.

Recipe Notes

You can make a lighter version of this milk by not adding khoya.

Also you can choose the dry fruits that you want to add in your milk.

I sometimes like to make a powder of dry fruits and add it in my saffron milk instead of adding the slivers. You can try it too.

Adding a little bit of ginger powder and clove powder also makes this milk more nutritious and is good to drink in winters as it keeps the body even warmer.

This recipe is very adaptable and you can adopt it to your liking and preferences.
