Almond Saffron Milk (Badam Milk)

Almond saffron milk is a festive drink; this can be served hot or cold. Milk with blend of nuts and
flavored with saffron to give a beautiful orange-yellow color and distinctive flavor and aroma.

Serves 2-3.


  • 20 Oz milk
  • 10 almonds
  • 10 pistachios
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar adjust to taste
  • few strands of saffron

 For Garnishing

  • 1 teaspoon thinly sliced pistachios


  1. Soak the almonds and pistachios ten minutes in hot water. Peel the skin off the almonds and pistachios.
  2. Grind the almonds and pistachios until smooth, using two to three tablespoons of milk.
  3. Boil the remaining milk in a heavy bottom pan over medium high heat, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
