Saffron milk with Pistachios

Pin It Now!

This is an easy to make flavorful milk that can be enjoyed before or after a meal.  Addition of pistachios gives a nice crunch and its own flavor along with the wonderful flavor of saffron.

Heat 2 cups 2%milk in a microwave or on stove top making sure not to burn it.  Add three pinches of saffron to 1 tbsp water and mix well. Add this to the milk along with, 1/4 cup powdered pistachios, 1/2tsp fresh green cardamom powder-or crushed pods from 3-4 green cardamoms, 1/4 cup sugar(+/- as per taste) and bring it to a boil.  Remove any film that may form on top.  Continue stirring making sure not to burn the milk.  Cook till the milk thickens a bit.  Enjoy hot or cold.


Note: If using microwave mix all the ingredients and cook the milk in a wide glass vessel so the milk does not overflow, till the milk thickens, stirring every few mins and removing the film.
Refrigerate the flavored boiled milk it enhances the taste and flavor more.
Remove the raw pistachios(make sure they are fresh) from the shell brush them and powder or crush them coarsely.
