About this Recipe
1/2 cup of condensed milk
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons crushed or grated fresh ginger (don’t use dried or powdered)
2 pinches of saffron strands
Slivered almonds for garnish
*Sugar or honey is optional and by taste for added sweetness
Bring 2 cups milk and 1/2 cup of water to boil, with freshly grated ginger
Make sure to boil on a slow flame (at least 10 minutes) until the milk gets aromatic with the ginger
Just before turning off the heat, add in condensed milk and stir well until combined
Let it sit for 3 to 5 more minutes, and strain to remove ginger pieces
Put two pinches of saffron into two tablespoons of warmed milk separately, let sit for a couple of minutes
Add the saffron milk into the rest of milk while it’s still hot, and pour the warm milk into glasses.
Decorate with slivered almonds and enjoy!
