Badam kesar milk recipe - how to make almond saffron milk - drinks recipe

Badam kesar milk recipe - Almond Saffron Milk, popularly known as Badam Kesar Doodh, is one of my most favorite drinks, which I love to make it on weekends or on special occasions. It is prepared with Almond, Milk, Saffron, Cardamom and Sugar.  The Cardamom and Saffron give a perfect balanced flavor and beautiful cream colour to the milk. Apart from its beauty and flavor, it also leaves the rich creamy taste in the mouth and comforts the throat with its texture.. At the same time, this milk is highly nutritious due to the numerous nutrients contained by both milk and almond. Note that saffron produces heat in the body. Therefore, expectant mothers should avoid excess intake of saffron. Very small quantity of  saffron can be taken as an ingredient in the sweets or milk.
