Milk Masala Powder

Some recipes are bookmarked and are on the “to-do” forever and some get done in a few weeks. Very rarely do I get to make something the day I bookmark it. This is one such recipe where I am doing it on the same day I am bookmarking it. Simple, quick, healthy, tasty – all in one and I had all the ingredients on hand and could not postpone this. The flavor and aroma was fantastic and it was fun doing. Just my thought about – “how much home made food is better than the store bought” kept coming to my mind. This lasted about 3 days and it got over, so not sure how long is its shelf life!!!. I got this one from here and it is surely a keeper
Almonds - 2 table spoons
Cashew - 2 table spoons
Pistachio - 1 table spoon
Cardamom - 6
Raw Sugar - 4 table spoons
Saffron - 1/8 tea spoon
Nutmeg - 1/4
Turmeric Powder - 1/8 tea spoon

In a pan on very low heat, dry roast almonds, cashew, pistachio for around 4 to 5 minutes. A nice aroma will start to come. You need to keep stirring it to ensure that it does not burn. Come on only 5 minutes:)
Around 4 minutes, add the cardamom, nutmeg and continue to stir and roast
At the end add saffron and remove from heat after a minute
Allow it to cool completely
Transfer to a blender, add sugar and pulse until it becomes a powder. Leave time gap between few pulses to ensure that it does not become a paste. The nuts contain a lot of oil and if they are processed continuously, oil may be released and you will get a paste and not powder.
Mix in the turmeric powder and store in an airtight container.

To serve - add 2 spoons in 1/4 cup warm milk and mix well to avoid any lumps. Add more milk to serve!
