Masala Paal (Masala Milk) is a special beverage in many of the restaurants. My first experience of tasting masala milk is in Hot Chips, it was so delicious and lip-smacking. I have been thinking of sharing this wonderful recipe, finally I made it today. It is so simple and easy yet so tasty. I have seen slight differences in the masala milk taste served in chennai and other parts of India. I have given here the Chennai Masala Milk with whole masala like cinnamon, cloves, cardamom along with some saffron thread to get a nice colour and finally garnishing with pistachios. The restaurant version of this masala milk includes Saara Paruppu (Piyal Seeds) instead of pistachios. We can find Saara Paruppu (Piyal Seeds) generally mixed with beetle nuts. I don't have stock of piyal seeds hence I have used Pistachios.
