Badam Doodh

In a chapter of the forthcoming book, some of the characters are drinking an Indian beverage called Badam Doodh. Here is how it is made. I found the recipe here.
I'm honestly not sure what Kesar is. The recipe makes me think of a drink that I like which is simply milk with about a 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract added. Very soothing!

Badam Doodh


2 cups milk
10 Almonds
Few strands of kesar
2 tsp sugar (more as per you taste)


1. Blanch the almonds, peel and cut into thin slices, lengthwise
2. Soak kesar in 1tbsp warm milk for 10-15 minutes
3. Bring milk to boil
4. Add soaked kesar, sugar and almonds
5. Let it simmer on slow flame for a min
6. Stir well
7. Pour into cup, from a height
8. This way a lot of froth will form on the milk.
9. Serve piping hot

Making time: 10 minutes
Makes: 2 servings
Shelflife: Best immediate
