Almond Saffron Drink | Kesar Badam Milk

>>  Tuesday, June 12, 2012

When I decided to make a meal with Saffron rice with Channa Masala, Methi Puris, I didn't realised that I was making using of Saffron so much. I got fancied with this breakfast thali, and decided that I would love to make the almond drink as well.

So I ended up soaking Almonds and saffron as well. Though I have made Almond Drink many times, I never really clicked pictures, knowing it's such a regular drink. Somehow I wanted to do it now and it was happy that I did. Maybe the amount of saffron that I used to add before was less. Somehow it had it's effect and it was very refreshing when it was chilled.

When I think of Badam, I am always reminded of our Badam tree we had when I was 7 or 8 years old. It was a huge tree and attracted lot of attention during the summer vacation. As a remembrance to that, I brought back couple of those fruits, hoping I will open them. Those two are still lying where I left them!

I am done with my second week of BM today with three posts of Cooking with Flowers.
