I love starting my day with a frothed warm milk with saffron and cardamom. Heat 1/4 cup of water + saffron (about 10 strands) + ground cardamom (about 1/8 ts) until the water begins to simmer. Simmer for a few minutes. Add the milk (1 cup) and heat the mixture until the milk is hot and frothy. I have an espresso machine so it's easy to do. It's even easier for me because my husband usually does it! If you like, put a little honey into the bottom of a glass, then stir in the milk, and garnish with slivered pistachio nuts (like in India) or a little cardamom.
