A tall glass of milk has been seen as a miracle potion of sorts in our country. Children of all age are encouraged to have milk at least once a day. In growing-up years, the calcium in milk helps build strong bones, while protein helps in muscle growth. Additionally, milk is also a storehouse of many other nutrients like vitamin D, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, vitamin B12 and zinc. It is no wonder that milk is also dubbed as a 'complete food'. Can you think of another beverage even half as loaded and nutritious? We certainly cannot!
Not just children, even full-grown adults can benefit immensely from milk. And if the plain taste of milk is a problem for you, we may have something of help. Masala doodh is one interesting beverage that has found fans across the world now. While Haldi doodh continues to charm us every day for all its potent and healing properties, turns out that experimenting with a few other spices is also not a that bad idea after all.
