Doodh no Masalo – Spice and Nut Blend for flavoring the Milk

Doodh no Masalo is an blend of nuts and spices ground to a coarse to fine powder and used to flavor the milk. One of the most traditional way of flavoring the milk is adding some sweet spices to it. families have their own recipe to this blend and there can be additions or deductions to the list of ingredients. The Doodh no Masalo is my most preferred add-on to the milk. I also go ahead and add it to my  Dalia or Oats when I have them for breakfast with milk. A cup of masala milk before  bed time  helps in enjoying a good night’s sleep.

The Doodh no Masalo makes a versatile blend that comes handy while making other desserts like kheer, kulfi or various halwa. Instead of assembling all the different nuts just add the required quantity of this blend to the dessert.

Go ahead and make your own blend of Doodh no Masala!! Oh yes, make sure to use fresh dry fruits.
