I am hunting for several options to include milk in my lil one's diet and this is one powder which i make often. It is tasty, healthy and homemade which is great for kids and toddlers. For sweetness i added palm sugar in this, you can use sugar as well. And the main thing is, dont over grind after you add badam, else it will turn into a paste.

Hope you will give this a try and not only your baby, you too can enjoy this healthy and tasty one.

Preparation Time : 15 mins
Baking Time : 15 to 20 mins
Makes : 1 cup of powder


Badam / Almonds - 1 cup
Panangkarkandu / Palm Sugar Candy - 1/3 cup or as needed
Cardamom - 6 to 8
Saffron a good pinch
Turmeric Powder / Manjal Podi - 1 tsp


Preheat oven to 160 degree C.

Take almonds in a sauce pan, cover with water, heat it and bring it to a boil. Once it boils, take it off the heat and set aside for 5 mins. Now drain it and wash it with cold water. Now squeeze and remove the skin. Pat the almonds dry with a paper towel. 

Now put the almonds in a pan and roast it for 15 mins. Remove it cool it completely.

Now take cardamom, saffron, turmeric powder, palm sugar in a blender and powder it. Now add in the cooled almonds and powder it once. 


Now remove to a bowl and cool little. Now pour this in a bottle and store it in fridge.

When you want to have it, just add a tblspn of the powder in a cup and pour boiled milk or warm milk over it and mix well.
