Saffron Milk

Got Saffron Milk? Not Your Ordinary Dairy Delicacy

10.03.21 /

Love milk? Dairy or non-dairy as it is, milk is already nutritious and considered as a superfood. But why not supercharge your glass of favourite milk by adding a pinch of saffron powder and making your own Saffron Milk? Also known as Kesar Doodh in India, saffron milk is known for its health benefits such as relieving and preventing fever and cold for women, helps reduce PMS pain and cramping. It’s also packed with the antioxidants crocin, safranal and picrocrocin that are believed to improve quality of sleep as well as boost memory retention. Of course, the flavours of saffron and milk combined are just heavenly — dairy, earthy with a subtle hint of distinct floral notes. Just add a pinch of saffron powder to a warm glass of milk, steep for a few minutes and sweeten with sugar or honey. You can add nuts for some crunch.

While I think of myself as an Aussie, I’m also proud as punch of my Iranian heritage. So much so, in 2013, I created a business built around the mouth-watering delicacies of Persia; bringing you flavours of the real Iran. I wanted to create a space at the table for the golden-petaled spice: Persian Saffron.
