Kesar badam Kadai milk is a very rich and luscious delicacy to crave for. This milk is an absolute delight with an enticing aroma of saffron and the goodness of almonds.


Serve these glasses of Kadai milk in earthen pots to your family and friends this Holi. It is probably one of the easiest recipes to try this season. The consistency of the milk is thicker than basundi and thinner than rabri. The art of preparing this drink is to scrape the milk that sticks on the edges of the Kadai and mix that in the milk while boiling. this will add to the density of the milk and give flavor as well.
