The best thing about this recipe lies in the fact that it can be customized so very easily. A mix of nuts, a mix of spices, your preferred sugar and voila! the homemade instant mix is ready to be used in many ways.  And the versatility doesn’t end there. Mix it with plant-based milk, low fat or full fat milk…the choice is yours.

The fragrant mix comes together quickly and it is a convenient option to enjoy cold, refreshing drink in the hot afternoon or a warm, comforting glass of milk whenever the mood strikes.

This mix is made up of almonds, pistachios and cashews which are lightly toasted till their essential oils are released. However, do take care while grinding them on a high-speed blender. The oils in the nuts can affect the texture and make the mix gluey and it is therefore important to grind them on a pulse mode till you get a powdery form of nuts.

Further adding a combination of pepper, saffron, turmeric powder and cardamom with their earthy flavours gives the mix an extra kick. And as I said before, the recipe is super flexible…you can include dried rose powder, cinnamon powder or grated nutmeg to the mix as well.

Of course, the ready mixes are available in the market but by making your own, you can control the sugar and the quality of the ingredients you are feeding to your family.

It’s wonderful with milk but sprinkled on a scoop of vanilla ice-cream or on Indian desserts like ras malai or shrikhand can turn a simple dessert into an exotic one. Do check out recipe of my saffron posset with a generous sprinkling of masala milk powder. It is heavenly!

The choices are endless and I hope you will get hooked on to its flavours once you try it.
