(Milk with Cardamom)
Cardamom helps the digestive system and is a spice greatly relied on in this
country. Boiled with milk, cardamom helps to relax the body and is thought
to calm the stomach, thus offering a good night's rest. Generally this drink
is served hot in large English teacups or small coffee cups.
Combine all ingredients in a medium pot and bring to a rapid boil, stirring
constantly. Boil for one or two minutes. Remove from heat, transfer to a
vacuum flask and keep warm until ready to drink.
- 6 cups fresh milk
- Sugar to taste
- 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
