This is a golden recipe. A heritage. A way of life.

A recipe which I want to pass on to my children ,as it has been to me.This sweet warm milk, with a hint of ginger for that subdued bitty flavor, Cinnamon and green cardamom adding to the wonderful aroma and turmeric ,giving its magical medicinal properties, to make it a golden drink.

As kids we weren’t fond of drinking this at all. But, now I love it.

This nourishing and grounding drink is full of benefits and a treatment for many ailments. In India, there may be any house, which hasn’t brewed this milk in their kitchen. There are many recipes followed to make this traditional drink. The web is flooded with the recipe of golden Milk.

 

How different is this recipe?

Well this recipe is rich and hot, and that’s why I named it shots .As it should not be had in large amounts. It has turmeric, honey, cinnamon, saffron, raisins. All these are rich ingredients and have a warm after effect.

 

Also, just about a 3rd of a cup will be sufficient to do the magic.

The flavors are heavenly. It’s a wonderful digestive as well. So, you may prepare it as post dinner treat. The original recipe was with honey, but since its summers I do it partially with brown sugar and just add 2 tsp. honey according to the quantity prepared.
